Is there a way that as my normal user (crute.michael) I can authorize 
Gnome as root. What I am talking about is something like running system 
tools as a regular user, you put in your root password and you can run 
the tool but when the tool shuts down if "forgets" that authorization. I 
would like to be able to do this with Gnome so that the file manager can 
run as root until I tell it to "forget the user authorization". Right 
now I have two alternatives, log in to Gnome as root or use a command 
prompt neither of which I want to do. Does anyone know how to do this?
