Hey, so I'm planning to copy a partition onto a bunch of machines. I'm booting from System Rescue Disk (because it has partimage on it) and I was wondering if there is a way to lock down the terminal so that no one other than me can access it.

I need to do this because I'll be going off to do other stuff while its copying (and it takes about an hour to copy) and this is in a school enviroment. And it being a system rescue disk it wouldn't be too hard to kill an entire system.

So I'm looking for a simple command on the terminal that will lock it down so that a person:
a)Can't switch to another terminal (think I might just edit the bootup script)
b)Can't do anything on the existing terminal without a password

Thanks in advance.

Note. This is entirely terminal based there's no GUI for system rescue disk.
