Reboot doesn't reboot

Just a simple problem I've encountered -- with a motherboard I'm working
with, if I call /sbin/shutdown -r now the system will go down fine
but never actually reboot itself.  Is there some kind of flag or BIOS
setting that may be needed to allow the warm boot signal to take place?

I have heard of this before. I think it can be fixed by giving the kernel:
reboot=bios in the lilo.conf.

1. my PC doesn't reboot after "reboot" or "ctrl-alt-del"

: hi linuxers

: I use linux since 3 month on my new PC, and it doesn't reboot
: when I press ctrl-alt-del. Since the first version I used on
: this PC (maybe 1.3.20, dunno), It never worked. My PC does the
: shutdown, then stay locked. It sometimes "shutdown" the video
: card (my screen's led begin to flash, indicating it has lost
: the sync), but never goes further.

This happens to me sometimes but ss long as pressing
ctrl-alt-del unmounts all your drives and partitions, you can
safely press the restart button on your box.
