Thanks Gavin.  Yes, <ALT>+<F7> does the trick, and serves as a good 
work-around.  However, I would like to figure out how I can have it boot 
directly to the login to make the process easier for them.  I'm gonna do 
some more digging around on the 'net, and if I can come up with an 
answer, I'll let everyone know.
