I'm familiar with the common shutdown issues associated with Win 98, but the issue I'm seeing with this system is a little different.  When I try to shutdown the machine it reboots instead.  Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks,
Brandon

Hi brandonr2d2,

I believe that this is a function of your motherboard and not windows.  I have seen numerous times when the computer does not shut down but restarts and I cannot think of any other reason than hardware.  

Cheers!

I disabled fast shutdown and that fixed it...  I didn't try this originally because it was the solution to the problem of the computer just not shutting itself off.  I guess it fives this problem as well.
