Add "Lock Screen" to CtrlAltDel panel


Is there any way to add the ability to lock the screen to the panel that comes up in KDE 3.4 when you do a Ctrl Alt Del? Old habits are hard to break ;-).

Regards
Bill R.

The problem is that I like the options the panel brings up, I would just like to add an option and have it be the default.

hhmm, interesting. My inittab specifies a shutdown. It seems KDE is intercepting it and bringing up this panel (which I prefer).
