I can't access onBoard whenever I need to enter the root password to do any administrative task. Is there any way to do this?

Hello,

If I got your problem right, the solution is to activate the "Password dialogs as normal windows" option in the Assistive Technologies control panel. You can find the Assistive Technologies control panel under the menu System->Preferences.

Cheers
