It is really considered bad form to log on to a Unix/Linux system as root. Just
open a command window and type `su -`. It will ask the root password and then
you can do anything as root from there.
You need to be a bit more clear about what you are trying to do. "make some
symbolic links disappear which show up in the gui" doesn't really make sense.
That's OK though, you are learning.
