je cite :

*  What is the magic SysRQ key?
It is a 'magical' key combo you can hit which kernel will respond to
regardless of whatever else it is doing, unless it is completely locked up.

*  How do I enable the magic SysRQ key?
You need to say yes to 'Magic SysRq key (CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ)' when
configuring the kernel. This option is only available it 2.1.x or later

*  How do I use the magic SysRQ key?
On x86   - You press the key combo 'ALT-SysRQ-<command key>'. Note - Some
         (older?) may not have a key labeled 'SysRQ'. The 'SysRQ' key is
          also known as the 'Print Screen' key.

*  What are the 'command' keys?
'r'     - Turns off keyboard raw mode and sets it to XLATE.

'k'     - Kills all programs on the current virtual console.

'b'     - Will immediately reboot the system without syncing or unmounting
          your disks.

*  Okay, so what can I use them for?
Well, un'R'aw is very handy when your X server or a svgalib program crashes.
sa'K' (system attention key) is useful when you want to exit a program
that will not let you switch consoles. (For example, X or a svgalib program.)

re'B'oot is good when you're unable to shut down. But you should also 'S'ync
and 'U'mount first.
