Here is my question:

Is there any reason why  I should not have root login shell 
dynamically link.?

And the answer with a lots of thanks goes to the following people:

Paul Wilkinson []
Hindley Nick []
Hendrik Visage []
Rodney Wines []

The reason why one should not have root login shell dynamically link is that
if for
any reason I have file system "/usr" mounted on a separate partition and it
can not
be mounted at boot time then I will not be able to login onto system.

Thanks again,
