PE4600 reboot problem

I have installed RedHat 7.2 on a PE4600. When I reboot the server it just
hangs at the restarting server message. I have added the 'reboot=bios,smp'
option to the grub kernel startup line:


kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.9-34smp ro root=/dev/sda5 reboot=bios,smp acpismp=force


But it does not seem to help. The same problem occurs with the standard
kernel (2.4.7-10smp) and I have tried the errata kernel (2.4.9-34smp).


Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?
