    I did read them. I actually need something a little different. I want to be able to panic the whole system and get a core(s) for the whole linux kernel. I'm reading through LKCD right now see if that'll do it.

    So... you want a way to forcibly take down a *nix box with a program, and coredump it? not as a user, for sure... maybe kill -3 0?
    I think pid 0 is kernel...
