I have a 386 which will fail 100 per cent of the time to C-A-D with
shutdown (admutils-1.1) called as 'halt'.
It works 100 per cent of time as shutdown.
It even works 100 per cent of the time as shutdown -q now
Reading the source, would have thought shutdown -q now equivalent to
halt --- motherboard and AMI BIOS don't think so.
BTW: reboot fails 100 per cent of the time.
shutdown is the first routine to completely work with AMI NCS BIOS.
C-A-D without executing any of the three, just sync works 10 to 50 per
cent of time depending on kernel from 0.12 thru 0.97pl1.5
