You mell well find that you just need to upgrade your userspace utilities
to make it work. For me, using the exact same kernel!!! but a different
distro makes the difference between the computer just sitting there when I
shutdown -h now or actually powering off...
In this particular case I just moved from SuSE 7.2 to Mandrake 8.1 and
suddenly poweroff worked. (Note I used my custom kernel in both cases
which I just copied from the old install onto the new one.)
Having said all that some versions of 2.4 kernels have broken shutdown so
it would help if you said which kernel version you are using...
