Solaris and restart option


I have got 2 OSs on my PC (Solaris and Mandrake).

If I am using Solaris and I want to restart PC to use Linux, what should I c
lick (GUI) to restart PC ?If I press icon "Exit" in Solaris it just loges me
out.

I know through a terminal we can press "init 6" for restart and "init 0" for
shutdown.

I don't think there's any GUI as now for shutting down/rebooting.
It won't be too difficult to build one though, from sudoing or RBAC command line scripts, init 6 and init 5 (better that init 0, as it power-off the machine too).

Update:

actually, it looks possible with Solaris 10 to have a reboot GUI, just replace the CDE login menu by gdm, and enable reboot in the gdm configuration file.
Code:
# /etc/init.d/dtlogin stop
# /usr/dt/bin/dtconfig -d
# svcadm enable gdm2-login

# vi /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf
...
SystemMenu=true
RebootCommand=/usr/sbin/reboot
HaltCommand=/usr/sbin/init 5
...

Thanks jlliagre

1- I do not have both options available on the login screen!!!, Is there any option or configuration we have to do it, to be able to see both options?

I have got couple of questions I am looking to configure my Unix machine, and I really appreciate if you can guide me to some useful web sites related to below choices:


A- I want to setup my desktop to use wireless card

B- If I am looking to access my unix machine from windows client, what should I do ?

1: I'm explaining in my previous posting how to do it from the command line, there's no way to do it graphically.

A: I'm afraid you have to wait for drivers to be available, unless you use an Asus WL-330g like I do.

B: what kind of access from windows ? telnet, samba, ftp, vnc, cygwin are some of the options that came first.

I think you misunderstood me, I said that I have only Common Disk Environment (CDE) session, I do not have GDM session,,,,,,,

Precisely, you haven't a GDM "session", and I'm trying to explain you how to have one.

If you installed Solaris 10, as I tend to believe from previous discussions, you already have installed JDS (gnome) as it is bundled with it, and so is gdm.

Please confirm it with this command that should shows a bunch of packages names:
Code:
pkginfo | grep -i SUNWgnome
If nothing is returned, you haven't gnome and this need to be clarified.
