Re: Howto make root commands available to any user



	- hitting the power switch ... will power off the box immediately
	or delay 5 seconds before power off .. more bios code ..

Conditionally wrong. Machines I install now do a graceful shutdown.

	- you can't "remap" the bios code to something else ...
	and if you did, its not "user friendly" since its not standard
	for everybody on every pc
	( all machines should behave the same way to prevent confusion )

If you run a box with just two cables - power and network - then the power button is a sensible tool for shutting it down.

As long as all file systems are mounted read only (nfs is built to
survive disconnects, but still ...)

You are not listening.

Use acpi and it shuts down _properly_.
