not really sure what happened, except it didn't work. Oh, I don't think 
it went through the scan part to actually find the router.. so it fails 
to connect.

um, not sure.. what...kdesu is. I just use $ su -
from the command line to get a "#" prompt

I don't think I have EVER used kwrite, konq, as root, and I don't even 
know what kuser IS. Synaptic I have used as root, I HAVE to use it from 
a root terminal on this debian box, the synaptic menu doesn't work.
I never run apps as root, except apt...whatever.. well, you know, 
crontab -e maybe..
