Gracefully is what the -h option of poweroff appears to do.  It shuts
down the drive before shutting down all power.  Right now, a shutdown
kills all power, and I can hear the drive spin down after the power goes
off.  On my dual-boot laptop, until FC5, I had to reboot into Windows to
get a graceful shutdown.

Now the question is how to edit the menu to get the dialogue when I do a
non-graphical (run level 3) boot and bring up X by entering startx,
versus doing a run level 5 boot directly into X.  It turns out the menus
you get are different and I need to fix it.

I needed to set up the non-graphical boot because my laptop has an
Nvidia display and they recommend changing the boot to run level 3.
