Hi !

Sorry for the delay on sending this summary.
My original question was:

>I would like to know if there is a way to disable system to ask for root
>password when you reboot or download the system to single user mode.

The solution was to change the link from /etc/sulogin to /sbin/sh
instead of /sbin/sulogin:

rm /etc/sulogin
ln -s /sbin/sh /etc/sulogin

With this, when you enter single user mode password for root is not required.
Thank you very much to all who responded :
