Dear Thomas Lovie. 

Thank you very much again.

I succeeded to make it out of Windows 98(not Window 2000) to Redhat6.1 following your reference site.
 http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q234/2/16.ASP

I made a schedule to shutdown & reboot  8pm using the win98 Scheduled Task manager.

In the win98 Scheduled Task manager, I put the command

runonce.exe -q 

after that,  it showed like this,

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\RUNONCE.EXE -q

It rebooted successfully.

but for me, 

rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 2

don't work.

Thank you very much.
