Foxconn 661M03 motherboard not rebooting with Fedora FC4

I am running a Foxconn 661M03c-6L motherboard with Fedora 4. When I ask the computer to reboot it shuts down ok but then hangs rather than restarting the boot process. I previously have used this board with Windows98/2000 without this problem.

I have several other Foxconn motherboards. They all have the same problem. They reboot ok with Windows O/s, but will not reboot with Fedora 4.

Shutdown seems ok.

I am now using this machine for a server and need to be able to occasionally reboot remotely. ( although Linux seldom needs reboots )

Is it a BIOS setting I am missing, or is there some other fix/setting.

Thanks in advance for any help.

If they're all 661M03 motherboards check for bad capacitors (the tops will be bulged). Although they insist otherwise, they had a bad batch of boards - I've been seeing a 75% failure rate on that motherboard. A shame, too - Foxconn is not addressing the issue despite their normal 2% failure rate for other boards. I'm thinking about dropping Foxconn boards because of their mishandling of an obviously defective product.
