# init 5 </dev/console
also works, but the system doesn't take as long to reboot (at lease on my
compaq 386/20) becuase the system doesn't check out the memory before

Looking through the appropriate scripts reveals that 
init 0 eventually causes a uadmin 2 0 to be done <--- no reboot
init 6 eventually causes a uadmin 2 1 to be done <--- powerup reboot
init 5 eventually causes a uadmin 2 2 to be done <--- warm reboot
