linuxconf --text  (or as bughead said, run X as root) but if you dont want to logout/in just for this, use the above switch, or use an ssh tunnel

what is the output of the command "id" if the output isnt like

"uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root),1(bin),2(daemon),3(sys),4(adm),6(disk),10(wheel)"  (uid and gid is important) then you arent root.
