[CrackMonkey] A little tip:

Add the following to your /etc/inittab and run "telinit q":
kb::kbrequest:/bin/sync

	This allows you to flush the disk buffers by hitting
Alt-UpArrow on the system console's keyboard.  It's useful when you
can't log in and need to reboot the system.  It's less confusing than
the magic SysReq stuff, and doesn't require any funky kernel compiles.

	Of course, if you can't create new processes, this won't work,
and Magic SysReq wins.  Still, I hit Alt-UpArrow now and listen to the
satisfying chatter as a form of meditation.
