Alternatively, install sudo, set up your kids as sudoers, giving them
only the ability to reboot, without a password, then put "reboot" in
their ~/.xinitrc files.
Or if you want to leave GDM, put "exit 0" in their ~/.xinitrc files
(I'm not sure this will work, but I'd try it).

It boots by default Debian but GRUB also has a choice at the bottom
XP is there mostly for my children games.
I would like to setup things so that in case they poweron the
machine and do not select XP in time and end up at the GDM screen,
their userid and password will just reboot the machine (they are
both used to typing their userid and password even the 5 yr old :->).
What is the simplest way to do so or any pointers to doc ?
(Or "shutdown -r now" or "shutdown -h now" instead of "reboot".)
Or change the grub default to go into Windows by default.
