Ctrl+C doesn't work on LiveCD


I've built two versions of a LiveCD. Each uses Frodo SLAX (a Slackware derivative). Each boots up and autoexecs a shell script which asks several questions, stores the answers to variables, and then runs a binary with the answers plugged in for the appropriate flags. Everything works great up to this point.

Once the script/tool begins running, however, I lose all ability to break on interrupt. Using Ctrl+C has no effect at all, though Ctrl+Alt+Delete still seems to. I tried adding things like

Code:
 stty brkint ^c
to the beginning of my shell script but it doesn't seem to work.

This happens regardless of whether or not I run my script, actually. If I so much as start a ping after I boot up, I cannot break out of it. Is there some obvious reason for this that I'm missing?

Thanks again guys--
Ben

Can you try CTRL+X ? Sometimes it works for me.
