From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
When the system is issued the reboot command from the console or ssh the system performs the necessary steps to shutdown.  After the steps are completed the system hangs after the following:

Retarting System...

After waiting several minutes the system will not respond and you have to either turn it off and on or press the reset key.

I am currently using the latest updates.
Linux syste.domain.net 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 #1 Wed Sep 28 19:15:10 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux..

I am using an Asus P4S8X-MX mainboard with an Intel 2.4GHz processor..Sis chipset with Audio/Video/Lan on board.  

This system is a text based server with NO X stuff installed...

System seems to run great other than this issue...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

At the point of actually restarting it hangs...
