My problem I always have with init=/bin/sh (not sure if emergency mode
helps or not), is that I always forget that Ctrl+C doesn't work...

eg. in order to fix the computer, I need a file from the network. In
order to get the network going, I need to test it. In order to test the
network, I type in something like:

ping hostname

and find, yes, the network is up and running, but at this point in time
it doesn't really help much.... Only option at this time is the big
reset button.

Any ideas how to enable Ctrl+C to prevent mishaps like this?
