    Put the following line in /etc/security/access.conf
    Code:
    -:ALL EXCEPT root:LOCAL
    That will disable all local logins except root. I have seen CONSOLE used instead of LOCAL on some machines. I suggest you leave root access at the console but you can remove that as well but it could be a pain if the network goes down and you don't want to reboot the box to fix it.
