It is, you have to 

echo "1" > /proc/sys/kernel/sysrq

To enable it. Maybe you can put it in one of the sysconfig files, somebody

It may still not work then depending on your keyboard.

That one should work if you are on the console. If you are in a window 
manager it depends if it gets trapped and passed by it or not.
