For a "normal" installation root's home directory is /root

and change to root's home directory.
ja at naxos ~ 1$ su -
[root at naxos:~]$ pwd
[root at naxos:~]$

For the occasions when it is desirable NOT to cd /root

I have an alias in /root/.bashrc
alias sbp='source ~/.bash_profile'

ja at naxos ~ 2$ pwd
ja at naxos ~ 3$ su
root at naxos ja 1001$ pwd
root at naxos ja 1002$ sbp
[root at naxos:/home/ja]$ pwd

changes the colour of the prompt (among other things)
PS1="\[\033[1;31m\][\u@\h:\w]$\[\033[0m\] "

There must be much better ways of doing this!
