The part that nobody's going to tell him:

1) It's *easy* to whomp a server with a Knoppix boot if you have physical access.

2) It's *HARD* to do so without anybody noticing that the server is down and
you're sitting there in front of it, typing away as fast as you can. And even
the most midget-brained user can figure out that if the server is down, and
you're still typing, and you're *not* the sysadmin, you probably have something
to do with why it's down...
