You don't have to bury much of the roots. Some plants though don't like parts of them to be buried, so you need to know what plants you got. Plantgeeks is a great site to get started on taking care of them, and identifying what plants you have in your tank. Here's a link to a great article to get you started on the site:

Java Ferns and Anubias do not need to have their roots buried in gravel. They should be tied to aquarium decor (with a black cotton thread for example). Cryptocorynes may appear to be dying in the beginning, but they should be able to grow their leaves back. Although they may not do so well under standard lighting. Their roots are usually buried under gravel.
