Just a quick thanks to all the regular posters to these fori: I've finally gotten my system to shut down on command! There are so many threads dealing with this, maybe matroxusers could post an FAQ, Shutdown Solutions That Work? My course of action was

First (as suggested many times in these fori):
Check IRQ
Disable fast shutdown
Use msconfig to check what driver is causing problem

Updated:
PD Video Tools 1.52.033
DirectX 7.0a
Marvel driver 5.41.008

Tried:
Re-install, re-install, re-install...
Fixing vmm32.vxd (per http://www.windows-help.net/techfiles/cmm32.html)
Windows 98SE shutdown supplement

What finally worked:
Tekram mobo BIOS 1.04 (release 3/24/00 to fix shutdown problems)
VIA AGP402.exe 4X/133 VxD (release 4/24/00)
Matrox Unified DOS Utilities ver 1.04 (release 8/3/99 to fix shutdown problems)
Matrox tweakutil.zip (release 4/20/00 to fix shutdown problems)

Didn't have to do:
PD registry hack

My system:
Tekram P6Pro-A+
P3-533
128MB PC133 SDRAM
Matrox Marvel G400-TV 16MB
Sony DDU220E/H2 6x/32x DVD
HP 8250I CD-RW 4x/4x/24x
IBM Desktar 22GXP 22.0GB U66
Viewsonic PS790 19 inch-.25mm
Diamond Monster Sound MX400
Cambridge Soundworks DTT2500 speakers

I've got another solution.
One dirty great big sledge hammer and shuts down permantly.

Just to make this FAQ complete, and for my own use, where exactly can one find the setting for fast shutdown? I usually shut down ok, but occasionally it will hang.

Even my Windows98 First Edition hangs now and then, but that's because some program in the background want to continue.

Maybe a keypress of Alt+CTRL+Delete will help you?

But not twice in rapid succession...

CTRL + ALT + DEL

The "Disable Fast Shutdown" checkbox is in the System Configuration Utility of Win98.

You can reach the System Config utility either through MS System Info (standard location: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSINFO\MSINFO32.EXE" or just type "MSInfo32" in the "Run" box of the Start Menu) and then look in the "Tools" menu, or you can go directly to it (standard location: "C:\Windows\System\Msconfig.exe", or just type "MSconfig" in the "Run" box on the Start Menu).

The "Disable fast shutdown" checkbox is about halfway down on the "General" tab.
