I have a LiveCD started as a default user. How to login as root?

Here it is said that there are boot parameters. How and when to set them?

    Have you tried just using su? Most of the time the default user on a livecd has passwordless sudo, and can also su passwordlessly to any other user. – Parthian Shot Aug 12 '15 at 0:22
