Re: [Plug] alt-SysReq

The help says:

If you say Y here, you will have some control over the system even
if the system crashes for example during kernel debugging (e.g., you
will be able to flush the buffer cache to disk, reboot the system
immediately or dump some status information). This is accomplished
by pressing various keys while holding SysRq (Alt+PrintScreen). The
keys are documented in Documentation/sysrq.txt. Don't say Y unless
you really know what this hack does.

Seems pretty straight forward to me. I dont know that it'll work in X
or not. X does wierd things to the keyboard input. I'd imagine it will. 
I'll have to try it.
