>How do I disable Ctrl-Alt-Del??

Check /etc/inittab.  Right now it traps the signal and does something
like shutdown...just change it to /bin/true or something.  I'm really
not sure what happens if you comment the line out.



From _Things You'd NEVER Expect A Southerner To Say_ by Vic Henley:

1. Trapping things other than ctrl-alt-del?

Most linux distributions trap C-A-Delete, and call shutdown - because
it's told to in inittab...

My question is : are there any more combinations I can trap in order
to run things as root? I'd like to assign shortcuts to things like
start.dip, stop.dip, cdplay and so on.

I'm aware of 'sudo'... and I'll try that if I can't do this...
