I subscribe to three email echoes about Linux, and I see a
recurrent theme: mysterious errors, solved by booting with
ACPI turned off.
ISTM that either: Linux just doesn't properly support ACPI, or
BIOS implementors just don't know how to get it right.
Either way (and I don't care which) perhaps the default boot
should be with ACPI turned off, and add an option to turn it
I had several mysterious problems with my machine until I
put "acpi=off" into my grub.conf.
Stock Windows XP has no problems with the ACPI on my machine.

I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
