What version of NT are you using? If you are running NT4 then
ctrl+alt+delete should work just as on the PC. Caveat: you can't use the
delete key above return, you have to use the one under Help.

Mr. Weatherall (who does the windows server) says it doens't work with
versions less than 4.

Hope that sorts this out. If it doesn't, it may be that you have a
keyboard with different virtual keycodes to the one here (i.e. if you're
not using an "Apple Extended keyboard II, Domestic" as it is labelled in
the manual).
