    The script you ran also installs sudo, which essentially gives your user root privileges.
    The advantage is that you have to specifically specify when you want to run a command as root, so it minimizes the chances of causing damage to the OS.

    When you ssh to the pre and you want to run a command as root- simply add sudo at the beginning.
    So for example: "mv file_a /somwhere/" should be "sudo mv file_a /somewhere/"
    You will be asked for your user's password to confirm you really want to run this command as root.
