When I left the Ubuntu Technical Help List (where people sometimes get into arguments over matters of opinion), I thought it'd be the last time that I'd hear of this issue, but reality has it that people just can't stop ranting about it... much like the way I can't run from pretty lesbians - they just keep coming back to haunt me!!!
Thanks a lot, Fred. :P

Just issue the following command:
sudo passwd root
