Did you try "init q" after you modified inittab to make it reread it?

You did it when you was in text mode, or in X windows ?
alt-ctrl-del works only in text mode

Good point. If you're in the GUI you can use the menus to reboot the server.

If you want to go to a text console from the GUI typing "ctrl-alt-F1" (or F2 or F3 etc...) will take you to one of the virtual consoles and you can do the ctrl-alt-del from there.
