Question Gnome 1.4: howto set ATX-shutdown/restart support in the "logout"-dialog?

I've added apm to my modules-file ..and it works.
Since I use Gnome as desktop, I'd like to also have the "shutdown"-option in the "logout"-dialog. Now, the "logout-dialog-help" says:
..the Halt and Reboot choices will only be shown if you have permission to execute the commands /usr/bin/reboot or poweroff.
BUT they don't exist! (e.g. not in that dir anyway) Do they refer to the two "similar" files in /sbin/?? How can I fix this in a secure way? Should I make those files readable/executable for my users? :0 Or should I make 2 "dummies" in /usr/bin which refer to the originals in /sbin/??

...OR should I grant all users privilege to use gshutdown (is this the component used by the logout-dialog?)

Questions, questions! l0L
