I was wondering if there is a way to restart Windows 2000 from the command prompt.  I know in XP there is shutdown, but I can find anything for 2000.  I'm sending out a batch file to install some hot fixes and want it to restart when its done.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Shutdown.exe is available in the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit. It is a command-line tool that you can use to shut down or restart a local or remote computer that is running Windows 2000 or Windows NT 4.0. If you want to schedule a computer to shut down and restart at a specific time, use Shutdown.exe in combination with the at command or Task Scheduler.

PsShutdown is a command-line utility similar to the shutdown utility from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit, but with the ability to do much more. In addition to supporting the same options for shutting down or rebooting the local or a remote computer, PsShutdown can logoff the console user or lock the console (locking requires Windows 2000 or higher). PsShutdown requires no manual installation of client software.

Thanks for both of your suggestions, I am going to use the psshutdown, but I split the points because I'm going to save the information for the future.  
Thanks Again
