I know that there is a file to edit to do this, but I don't remember  
off the top of my head, I'm sure it's in the archives somewhere. I  
know this has been discussed before.

	Items that require root (administrative) permission may show up in  
the menu, but that doesn't mean the students can make changes to the  
system. It's going to ask for an administrative password if they try  
to make changes to the system; so even though they might have that  
menu, they don't have root access. I'm sure there is some way to  
change the menu so that students don't even have those menu items,  
but I've never worried about it, since they can't do any damage.
