I guess I've got more reading to do! I'll have to figure this part out.

Typing 'x' could be bad anyway, since the whole system is down. At least it
would allow for an orderly shutdown?
I've got another question related to this: could it be a hardware failure on
my computer's part somewhere? The kind of failure that a 2.4 kernel would
see, where a 2.2. kernel wouldn't?
Thanks for the help!
