    How to edit Menu.lst file?

    Just installed K 3.9 on my HD.
    I noticed you can't login as root in the normal splash box. I got root access in the terminal, then tried to edit my menu.lst file by: gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst --- this didn't work, so I tried: kwrite /boot/grub/menu.lst --- neither did this. How do you do it? Thx.
