Kai: Thank you! That was a great idea! It does not work on my box.
Possibly it isn't in the Kernel? I also tried CTRL-ALT-DEL and that
did not work either......

This morning, I had a problem with this box, while trying to use K3b.
It couldn't find the CD-RW drive, when I was ready to write the data,
although it saw the empty CD-R media in the drive and then crashed and
the box rebooted. I am going to run Diagnostics, to see how the HD,
RAM and Motherboard are. Lanny
