You can't look at the code. Windows 98 is a closed source product. There
are a number of issues with Windows 98 not shutting down, try installing
all of the relevant Microsoft patches. This is not a Samba problem, but
a problem with your client. Apparently setting the "Assign IRQ to VGA"
option in the CMOS helps.
