This is a debian-user question. By default, if you step through the
installer and _don't_ give a root password, then sudo is set up such
that the first created user is set up to use sudo.

Login as that user and type sudo [command]

At least that's what I'm assuming you're asking. If you want to 
get a root shell on any random Debian machine - no, sorry, won't help
- you have to do your own homework and (potentially) break your own
  laws.

  All the best,
