at a graphical login, password when doing sudo?  On the console, over ssh?  It's not exactly clear what you are asking.

 

If you are really asking "I want the root account to not have a password, how do I do that?"  all I'm going to say is "you really really really don't want to do that"

The reason is because its a major security issue if you disable the Admin password. If your computer is compromised the attacker can then use your normal account to issue "sudo" commands without ever having to type in the password you initially set, and can also drop right to the root shell and cause lots more havoc.

I'm still not clear:  are you saying you want to disable the password for the root account?
