change what, what way? do some systems have a halt button next to the reset
button? i'm just wondering why when linux shuts down, it reboots instead of
just dropping to the SRM prompt. it makes it so that i can't do something
like 'shutdown -t 900 -h now' if auto_action is set to boot, because then
it'll just boot back into linux. in other words, shutdown -h and shutdown -r
do exactly the same thing.

thanks for the help, btw. :)
