Re: Rebooting and halting the system in gnome

 Helix packages as well as RedHat packages come with this enabled. 

 Now new users would never go check that file for configuration 

 What I was trying to hint at is that you really should allow 
shutdown/reboot on all local logins (physically at terminal), put a 
notice on RedHat manual/Helix code packages manual telling sys admins 
about how to disable it, so that universities, corporations might 
change it if they wish.

 For me home user of linux, I don't want to be asked for passwords for 
those kinds of things IF I am logged in physically, period.
