Here, try this:

# cat > /etc/init.d/

echo "Open the lid on ns2 and then press return to continue."
read foo
# ln -s /etc/init.d/ /etc/rc6.d/

That'll get everything you can get. (Any reboot that doesn't process
/etc/rc6.d won't process any scripts at all, so you're screwed
anyway.) I don't recall if Linux has reboot(8) parse /etc/rc6.d or
not. But you might want to have people only reboot the machine with
`shutdown -r now` or with `init 6`.
