Very good one, guys!!!

If I SHUT DOWN my PC with the usual Win98SE clics, wait for about 15 sec and restart it, everything works fine.
If I choose to RESTART it instead, with the same usual Win98SE clics, my system hang while booting. Hard boot (reset), safe mode, shut down, wait, restart... and everything return to normal...?!?...
The only suspicious thing is my IDE ATA-33 4.3GB Fujitsu MPC3043AT hard drive. It's the second (handy) hard drive on my system, not my primary master one. No matter if configured as a slave on primary channel, as a master or a slave on the secondary channel, with the jumper setting ok for each position, the problem still persist.
My cables are ok, the BIOS detect the drive each time, both channels are activated, the drive is formatted and partitionned by the book. As a matter of fact, everythings ok since my drive works when I "cold boot" my system. So, what's wrong??? First time I've seen this one...
Thanks for the support!!!
