yeah sorry mate. Mea culpa, Bloody bad manners of me
Issue#1: Root password
By default there is no root password
A) set global sudo - in a terminal type "gconftool-2 -\-type bool -\-set /apps/gksu/sudo-mode true"
B) instead of logging in as a user at the first terminal screen, log in as root. At the terminal prompt type "sudo su" and then "startx" X11 runs as root and won't ask for root passwords
C) Set a root password. In a terminal type "sudo passwd root"
Issue#2: Missing config.txt
By default this file is not there.
Create one by typing in a terminal "touch /boot/config.txt"
This can be populated by reading the advice at http://elinux.org/RPi_config.txt
