my fault, I have a number of bugzilla items in on this...

you'll note that on the last one, I did figure out that appending

pci=noacpi timesource=acpi_pm

kernel parameters will allow you to install/boot

but I have never gotten grub to boot on these things and nothing has
changed there, thus I continue to use lilo to get these things to boot
which means that each kernel update requires a manual run of lilo.

I'm hoping that we get these things all worked out as I am working
doggedly with the kernel developers on this



thanks for the tips adding pci=noapci and clocksource=acpi_pm indeed allowed me to start the install.  I have added myself as a CC on the bugs you mentioned so, I'll keep my fingers crossed.  A complication on my part is that these are to be dual boot systems.  I havn't used lilo in years so I'm going to have to brush up on my dual boot lilo configuration.

Thanks again, Alastair
