You could give them enough access to hang themselves. Get a declaration, then
after everything is finished ask for verification.

Leave the machine running, set up a script to create a username of their
choosing, with sufficient privileges to verify but not change anything.

The script to require:

I,..........(full name)................................... of ......(personal
address)........,    ......(corporate position).......   .....(Company).....
.............corporate address........ .....contact numbers etc........
make oath and solemnly declare
1.
That I am sufficiently qualified, current and familiar with the linux environment
to guarantee that I will not cause any damage or detriment to this system or any
connected systems if granted user access.
2.
Both I personally and  and .....(company).... indemnify your company for any
losses caused as a direct consequence of the users actions and can substantiate.
Further we undertake to financially compensate your company for any losses that
inadvertently occur.
3.
That I am authorised to give such an undertaking on behalf of ... companyname....

4.
That I read and fully understand the above and if necessary I have consulted with
solicitors before signing etc.

Dated this 14th day of June, 2001

Please type "ACCEPT" and press enter to continue.


Declaration prints......

Please confirm your signature and that of the witness have been affixed to the
above declaration.  do so by typing "SIGNED" and pressing the enter key.

User is created with limited privileges.

............. Audit plays out.........

BTW remember the user declaration you signed, we need to verify your LPIC.

We are shocked that an AUTHORISED M$ representative would make a false
declaration.  Is this a part of some M$ plot against the open source community?


Maybe not, but its a good plot against M$.

Cheers
