I am not sure how 2.4.22 works, but if it still compiles acpi stuff as modules, don't do it. Just say 'y' and make em part of the kernel. I am not sure about that 'append' paramater in lilo since i use grub, but i did find some things on google:

I tried what you suggested (just compile the kernel with acpi set) but
it doesn't work.
My motherboard is an ASUS a7v266-e.
I'm going to try some thing else.
