Your best bet is to see whether the "install" account is passworded.
By default it isn't, and that account can change the root password.
If there is _any_ account that can login, there are enough setuid
root components in the user agent that there will probably be a way
to get root authority. Unless it's a system that was owned by a
bastard like me who tracked down and "fixed" (like a veterinarian
with a tomcat) all of the security holes.
