Disabling kexec

In debian 6.0(Or any other distro that uses kexec) when we reboot(Either from GUI or from the command line) it does not display the grub menu and directly loads the kernel that we are running currently.
This is because of the use of a system call called kexec.
kexec makes reboot faster because it skips the hardware initializations that BIOS does and directly loads the kernel.
This behaviour can be modified by setting the flag LOAD_EXEC in the file /etc/default/kexec to false.

and set the flag as below

Note: After changing the flag, shutdown and boot the system for the change to take effect. Rebooting straight away might not work.
