We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

The same in wolverine with kernel from rawhide.
Can you try adding one of the following items to lilo.conf as append= ?
*** Bug 28602 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
kernel-2.4.2-0.1.25.i686.rpm don't reboot
but kernel-2.4.2-0.1.28.i686.rpm reboot without appends.
Since recent kernels work again, I'll close this. But please reopen if
the problem comes back again.
Kernel in RH7.1 don't reboot again.
Can you try adding "reboot=b" on the lilo prompt and see if you can reboot ?
This option seems to be the best bet in getting it to work.
The same. Don't reboot too.

The messages log, from the point the shutdown -r now commaned is issued to the point were X is up an running.
I have been experiencing the same or a very similar problem using the 2.4.18-4smp (and 2.4.18-3smp) kernel. The last line displayed on the
screen when going through the shut-down / reboot process is (shutdown -r now)
(<c0108c5b>) system_call [kernel] 0x33
code: f0 fe 08 0f 88 9c 1d 00 00 80 bb 05 01 00 00 00 75 19 8b 54
INIT: no more processes left in this run level
at which point it hangs. Issueing a ctrl-alt-del at this point will return the line
shutdown: warning: cannot open /var/run/shutdown.pid
According to the messages log the shutdown worked fine but nothing happens until the machine is reset.
When using the 2.4.18-4 (or 2.4.18-3) kernel everything works great.
RH 7.3 kernel-2.4.18-3.i686.rpm don't reboot PC.
What is difference between kernel-2.4.2-0.1.25.i686.rpm and
kernel-2.4.2-0.1.28.i686.rpm? May be it help to understand reason of error.
RH 8.0 kernel 2.4.18-14 reboots correctly.
