No. inittab file control the virtual terminal, but that key combination is controlled by X server. Even if you disable virtual terminals, users can still switch to the virtual terminal (even if there is no login prompt).
You can modify you're X server configiuration with the following section:
Section "ServerFlags" Option "DontVTSwitch" Option "DontZap" EndSection
However, to have a stronger configuration, it's better to disable virtual terminals.When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"

Sorry for not getting back to you , I missed the post until it was bumped. Look at the entries below from /etc/inittabCode:
# Run gettys in standard runlevels 1:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty1 #2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2 #3:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty3 #4:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty4 #5:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty5 #6:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty6
You can disable the virtual terminal by setting the 'respawn' section to 'off'' or by changing the runlevels in which it is present. For example, have them working in all runlevels but 5.
I'm looking at changing the key combination but I can't seem to find it. I will post back if I find it.
