Hey Catweazle I had that in mind too .. but when I tried that .. I clicked on the shortcut ... and bang .... it restarted my pc ... all my work went in vain .. hehe. So I thought I'd better not post that here.
Ahh ... the shutdown -r command ;) I use that command in linux hehe :)
It's been a long time when I used linux but what I remember is that I used to shutdown linux with halt command ... is it still used or shutdown is the new command .... I've used Red Hat Linux 4 I think.
i have tried to use those commands in Win2000 OS but it didnt work it displaied this: "Cannot find the file "shutdown (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and all required libraries are available "
