"halt" is an option in the utility menu.  Maybe for consistancy either
it should be brought into the initial menu, or "reboot" placed in the
utility menu.  Realistically, you probably don't need to reboot from
sysinst - after you've installed the system, you still need to edit
rc.conf and possibly other files anyway.  Phil?
