is there a way to give an account other then root, root access? permanently? because i have many files that i need root access to edit and it is driving me nuts, not being about to put stuff in some files and not being able to take them out of others.

If you are a linux user you can use PAM to give such permissions

If you and the superuser are in a group then the superuser can grant access..
1. Login as root..
2. change the permissions of the files to 777 chmode -r 0777 .. it will change the permissions recurssively.. If you don't want for others then give 770 instead of 777..
