Question Shutdown Options

Can anyone enlighten me on how to use the shutdown with -r -t ?
The man pages give syntax, but no examples.
Just for testing I want to reboot the machine and give users a 10 second warning. For this I used:
/sbin/shutdown -r -t 10
and many other variations. None of them work. Actually plain old /sbin/shutdown with no augments gives me errors.

Thoughts?

I have no reason to use delayed shutdown myself. I just use
shutdown -r now

It goes down just fine.

Well thanks! Thats the first "shutdown [any option]" that has worked for me!
I, however, would like to get the whole family on Fedora eventually and need to give folks warning.

While I'm at it, do you know what the Linux equivilant to MS netsend is?

Also 'poweroff' will work.

I've been using plain old reboot and halt -p for a while. There "just might" be hell to pay when I switch the wife over to Fedora and then shut her down without warning!!!!!!!!!!!!!
