logout option, and have to su to root and run "/sbin/shutdown -h (or -r)
now" for shutdown or restart.  How do I get the shutdown/restart
dialogue under the System menu for the machines at run level 3?

You can issue this command "init 0" to shutdown the system in init level 3 and "init 6" to restart the system. You can issue these commands with root only, with normal user you can use
"poweroff, shutdown, halt" etc. to know more about these commands read their man pages.

for example   man poweroff
