For me and my way of thinking.  Install Xterm... Install openssh (as apposed 
to dropbear) from garage.  open Xterm and  do ssh root at localhost  use rootme 
as the password.  Add this line to /etc/sudoers  


Now give bother the user named user and root real passwords. Once you do this 
user, user can sudo su  to root whenever you need it to.   I also recommend 
removing the ability of root to ssh directly after you have confirmed that 
you can sudo.
