CTRL-ALT-DEL: The Three Finger Salute
The infamous CTRL-ALT-DEL of the MS/Windows world (to
reboot or shutdown your computer) is enabled by default under Debian.
It is the following line in the initialisation table that enables
# What to do when CTRL-ALT-DEL is pressed.
ca:12345:ctrlaltdel:/sbin/shutdown -t1 -a -r now
Thus, the ctrlaltdel action is enabled for runlevels 1, 2,
3, 4, and 5. If you want to disable the CTRL-ALT-DEL salute then
simply comment out this line (by inserting a hash).
