    You can't really access root on OS X. You don't really need to. However if you need to run something as root then 'sudo <command>' should do the trick. You will need your account password for this.

    If you want to run SSH on your box then System Prefs > Sharing > Remote Login, turn that on and then SSH is enabled on your machine.
