I have installed osr2 on a machine with a cyrix 120 686 chip. When I shut down to dos it does a complete shut down. No dos prompt either.Any ideas?

I once had trouble shutting down and solved it by moving exittodos.pif out of the \Windows dir. (and out of the path)
What happens when you move logow.sys and logos.sys out of the \Windows dir.?

If you've recently installed new programs, try removing them to see if the problem resolves. Certain antiviral programs have a tendency to cause this problem.

Does the file exit to dos.pif (short cut to MS-DOS program) Exist in your Windows directory?
Is there a copy of MSDOS.SYS in your Windows directory?
Problems with either of these have been know to make "Restart in MS-Dos mode" not work.
