Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm using RH ES3.0 Kernel 2.4.21-4.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Oct 3 17:52:56 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I've a little problem.
My problem is,
Once I send command "shutdown -r now" in CLI.
The system will be shuting down process.
It looks good.
But It'll be frozen on "System Halting" line.
I've to come at Server then put the power button for power off it.
My aim that i don't want to come at system everyday to turn it off
Because it's remote system.
Anybody ever encounter this problem??
Sounds like you need either APM or something to shut it off. Mine uses APM. It depends on the mobo though. May need to search for your mobo model and apm in www.google.com/linux and see what others use.
Thanks for you all,
I don't know this symtom regard with APM or not.
because of in previously time,
This system can shutdown by normally.
But a couple weeks ago.
This system needs to come and turn it off.
This is Dell Server.
I've run command that get result
APM BIOS 1.2 (kernel driver 1.16)
AC on-line, no system battery.
I think it has to be in the kernel. I'm not sure how Redhat does their kernel. I'm a Gentoo nut so I know how to redo mine but I have never used Redhat. You may want to see if you have the kernel sources installed. May also want to seach the Redhat section. I'm sure there is a how to in there somewhere.
Sorry I can't help more than that. Maybe a Redhat user will come along and help.

I'd like to know what did you do in Gento?
Red Hat shoud have the APM support built in to the kernel. You get "No APM support" from "apm -v" when the apmd daemon is not running. I believe all you have to do is enable the "apmd" daemon to start up at boot time.
You should have the command-line tool called "chkconfig." That lets you do it. First, type in (as root):
# chkconfig --list apmd
This will show whether or not the apmd daemon is on the list of services. If it comes back empty, run (again as root):
# chkconfig --add apmd
This will add the daemon as a service that can be started at boot time. Type the following to make sure it's turned on:
# chkconfig apmd on
This should enable the apmd daemon to start at boot time.
