I've read one person's claim that disabling IRQ steering solved their Win98SE shutdown trouble. Q182628 gives the steps and explanation. Haven't tried it yet...

Control Panel, System, Device Manager,
System Devices, PCI Bus, IRQ Steering tab.
Clear the Use IRQ Steering check box, OK out and restart.
