Description Edmund Cheng 2000-10-12 00:56:34 EDT
Gerenal user can reboot the computer by typing the 'reboot' in console
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-10-12 10:25:31 EDT
This is a feature, not a bug, since physical access to the console (and
keyboard, and usually
power switch etc),  permits rebooting through other means that are not (and
cannot be) password protected.

FWIW, typing "reboot" on console as non-root user asks for the user's password
before rebooting.
