I installed FREEBSD 5.2.1. I can telnet to Free BSD box from Windows 2000
client. I can telnet to it with my USERNAME and PASSWORD. Then I want to be
root. So I issue SU - ( or SU - root).  then FreeBSD box asks me the
password (root's password ).
when I give root's password, FreeBSD box does not accept . Why ? Pls help me

it's a very bad idea to use telnet for obvious security reasons. Use ssh. Please note that toor and root both have a password of their own and you'll have to be in their group in order to su.
