Ok well, I still see no need to reboot or "restart", unless you want to reinstall or add hardware...  And at the reinstall portion, I would say repartition to slightly different sized partitions.  I've had trouble in the past with RH not formatting properly, and having old files remain in /boot, /usr, and a partition of my own /storage.  Besides the files that are not needed can be deleted out of the rc directories and the processes can be killed.  And since it is RH that you are talking about, linuxconf or control panel both can be used to restart, enable, disable and shutdown services, thus again making a reboot a waste of time unless you plan to reinstall or add hardware. :Q) 

Twas a hard windows habit for me to break as well.....
