Did you try sudo su?

Here is my problem (which I've tried googling to find workaround).
I want to see what is on all my old hard drives prior to running DBAN on them.
Thought I would boot a live CD and mount drives and see what they look like
from a data perspective.
So, I boot PC using Ubuntu 5.0.4 Liv CD, which boots me into user unbuntu with
ID of 1000+. But now I can't su to root, so I can mount drive and see data.
I've tried googling to see how I can get around this, but no luck.
I'm hoping someone can help me overcome this.
