Thanks for the suggestion.  I didn't realize I could acheive the same thing
using _net_.  
Unfortunately, I also received similar problems.  Now the error looks like this
when no user is 
logged into the windows machine:

[]# net rpc shutdown -I x.x.x.x -U Administrator 
[2004/03/23 19:30:18, 0] utils/net_rpc.c:rpc_shutdown_internals(1571)
  Shutdown of remote machine failed!

When a user is logged into Windows, the above error does not appear, and
shutdown occurs as 

What services other that RemoteProcedureCall are necessary for this in Windows?
