[driverloader] Installing driverloader on Ubuntu 5.04?

Ubuntu doesn't actually disable root. I use root all the time on my 
Ubuntu box. However, it is geared toward sudo instead. So try using sudo 
to run dldrinstall (something like `sudo dldrinstall.run`). If you 
REALLY want root access then do `sudo passwd root` and then you can su 
to root.
