You can use the tramp package for this. Once properly installed and
available in your session, you can do 'C-x C-f /su::/path/to/file',
provide your superuser password, and you'll be editing the file as
superuser thereafter. Watch out for a nasty bug that bit me with kernel
2.6.10 (http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.devel/37967).
