    SubjectRe: PCI oddities on Dell Inspiron 5000e w/ 2.4.x
    In your message of: Sat, 24 Feb 2001 11:55:07 CST, you write:
    >Careful, you're overwriting ACPI data now (and using it as normal RAM).

    Hmm, I guess that would be bad.

    >Can you try one of a) LILO b) a fixed version of grub c) this patch ?

    I tried LILO and the problem did indeed go away when using that. I
    guess I'll stick with LILO until Linux or grub (whichever is broken)
    is fixed. There is just something appealing about a proper boot
    console on a PC...
