System reboots when shutdown is selected

Hello people I need a little help when I try to shut down my system running Mandrake 8.1 it just reboots and some times it hangs a the text mode with login: blinking how do I get to the X window from there or a better question yet is there a link that gives me more instruction on how to use the command prompt. Any help that you can provide is greatly appreciated. I am a newbie and I have been thru the manual that came with my disk set and it mostly gives instruction on how to use the GUI not the command prompt.
