Good. I don't want a clueless it manager administrating a linux box
anyway.
Of course the same applies to NT. Try creating a unprivileged account
named "administrator" with full access to a faked control panel. Or
for something a little easier - a fake program named "format"
or "deltree" that writes the same on screen as the real thing.
And makes the disk click by seeking. :-)

Any os is sooo easy to simulate a break in.

Don't work for a manager that clueless - or tell him it's a hoax.
