Cannot reboot from busybox

Hi all,

I am building a small Linux system around busybox. The system boots fine,
the applets work fine apart from the halt and reboot. I am using the boot
scripts from ttyLinux, which also uses busybox. When I run the reboot or
halt applet I get the message "reboot: no process killed" in the case of
reboot. Are there any specific applets, or options that I need to select
before compiling busybox or any changes to any of the bootscripts I am

I have done some googling about this, but couldn't come across any page that
helped solving this.
