|If yours is the second newer method then edit default grub menu to eliminate any non user= options.|
I am using a traditional HD install.
The GRUB entry that I'm using reads: kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda2 quiet vga=normal acpi=off apm nodma noscsi frugal
It's the default entry that was given when I installed GRUB, except that I modified the acpi and apm options.
Is there another way that I can turn off acpi and turn on apm so that I can remove all the options?
|However, any machine that can boot from cdrom, usb, floppy, etc, and someone has physical access can always choose to boot many OS, not just Linux, and gain full control of your machine.|
Okay, I understand that. I'm not trying to bullet-proof the machine, but I would like to control the installed OS so that it doesn't open any doors like this.
|Multi-user has been in place for a very long time, and it is driven by /etc/inittab.|
If anyone can help me understand what changes I need to make, I'd be grateful.
