Screen Saver for LINUX - ROOT

Good Morning.
I have a question about screen savers in LINUX especially CENTOS. I don't seem to have a problem setting the screen saver with a password required for the root account(version 5.3). I'm told earlier versions you could not set it for. I was wondering if newer versions of LINUX had the option for the screen saver/PW available for root.
