[PLUG] Ubuntu root password

Hi all,

I am trying to do a minimal install of Ubuntu 11.04. I started with Ubuntu
server and selected minimum install, previously known as JeOS (Just Enough
Operating System). I then manually installed xdm, gnome-core and xorg.
Everything came up fine, however whenever I run an application, such as
synaptic that prompts for a password I am told invalid password. However if
I run sudo synaptic for example and put the password in there, it works
fine. So I am entering the correct password, at least for sudo. Is there a
separate password for root, or is there something that I still need to
install to synch the passwords?
