There's new info in the bug report since I first accessed it. I need
to try adding "apm=power_off" to grub on my K6-2 box to see if that
fixes the problem. I'll let the list know if that's the cure for FC.

Adding "apm=power_off" to grub fixes the shutdown problem I
encountered using OpenSUSE 10.2 and FC-6 for my two old boxes. (One
with an Asus SP97-V motherboard, AMD K6-2 CPU, Award BIOS. The other
is a Gateway with 600 MHz P3 600 MHz CPU, PHoenix BIOS.)

Hope this helps solves your problem, too.
