Rebooting a persistent system without asking nothing

Hello friends of debian-live mailing list, im sending this email asking for the help of you all about a little problem that im having in order to have debian-live (Gnome/Etch) rebooting without asking the user to press any key.
In first place i install the debian-live (debian-live-etch-i386-gnome-desktop.img) in the pendrive (Kingston DataTraveler, USB 2.0, 8GB) using dd. After that i edit the syslinux.cfg (using parameters) to make the system persistent, configure the layout of the keyboard, set the ramdisk size and set the hostname. I also created one partition ext2 with 4gb and another in FAT32 with 3gb (the partition with the live system has 1gb). What i need now is to make the system reboot without asking nothing to the user, allowing remote reboot and shutdown.
I found this "patch" in this post http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/debian-live-devel/2007-February/000838.html but i don't know how to apply the patch in my system, if they indeed work.
Any help will be great!
Thanks guys!
