A difference without distinction:  sudo, for all intents and purposes == root.
DO NOT USE root PRIVLEGES FOR ANYTHING unless explicitly required, and even 
then, SECOND GUESS IT!  IE, "Hmm, it says it needs root.  Should I /really/ 
run it as root?"  9 times out of 10, the answer is "NO!"

No, 100% of what you can do in Linux that doesn't involve system 
administration can be accomplished very easily without root privleges.  If 
you're running into permissions problems at this point, it's probably because 
running stuff as root has fucked up your permissions.  Read the archives:  
This is NOT new territory for this mailing list.
