Lee Turner is correct, a default RM machine running Windows 98 (or
95...) will allow local admin if it can't reach the network. Since
such machines would be deployed in schools and sometimes by people who
do not know anything about what they are doing, this attack can work
rather well.

However, RM's defaults are worse than that, as all restrictions are
stored in the registry, so you can just as quickly unrestrict yourself
with modification of a few keys...
