Default Win98 shutdown problem

I recently upgraded my kids computer i.e. new mobo, cpu, and ram. I reformatted the hdd and reinstalled win98. Now when I shut down or restart from windows, the win98 logo comes up with the "windows is shutting down" under it and the computer hangs at that point. I have to manually push the power or restart button get it to do eather. Any suggestions?

System specs are:
Intel D865GBF mobo
Intel 2.26 cpu w/ stock HS and Fan
3.0 gig 5400rpm WD HDD
256MB pc3200 ram (running at 333mHz)
gforce 4200 Ti 64 MB video card
Onboard sound
4x cd rom (very old)
standard 3.5 disk drive
420 watt PSU
Chieftec Apollo case
