I assume that you're connected via an x-terminal.

You indeed connot login as root. After you logged in as a user try

"su -", this will Switch to User root, and ask you for the root password.

Then to make sure the graphical output is exported to the correct screen you have to set your DISPLAY-variable.
first find out what your local-IP adress is.
Then

"export DISPLAY=<localIP>:0"
where <localIP> is your IP adres

e.g. "export DISPLAY=192.168.1.1:0"
then you can run linuxconf
