I have tried this - the hard reboot.  It doesn't boot - it just goes 
back to the eee box splash sreeen.  It does flash something about the 
'asus gateway', but I don't get a motherboard splash where I might enter 
the bios settings or anything.  It just says 'eee Box'.  It is taunting 
me (Taunty Jackalope).
