That's an interesting approach, and eliminates the chance of again
missing the XP entry within the 5-second window. Cool.

My Debian machine has a dual boot setup with GRUB.
It boots by default Debian but GRUB also has a choice at the bottom for XP.
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 ?
First of all you can change the default boot entry to your XP.
You can think about grub-reboot script as a new shell. Like add a script which
executes grub-reboot with your XP entry as a parameter. Next you have to do
is add user with this superb shell. I think it might work.
