Please see the FAQ SA2: Why can't I su to root? --pjp.

For anyone who cannot su to root, please, please, please take the time to read the Forums FAQ, the Gentoo FAQ or any number of posts here in the forums.

As you might have guessed, that question is by far the most-often asked in these forums. :)

Here's another variant of this often asked question: su problem: (/etc/group is ok) i rtfm... twice and belong to wheel group, but can't su to root. both address the issue of file permissions on /bin/su.
