It's Matsonic 7132A (http://www.matsonic.com/ms7132a.htm ;
http://206.135.80.155/manual/ms7132a.pdf).
Pretty nice board. Latest bios for it is dated 09/13/00 and
there is no upgrade.

Tried this with strange results - kernel halted during boot,
after displaying:

[... dmesg ...]
PM: Adding info for ide:1.0
hda: max request size: 1024KiB
hda: 156301488 sectors (80026 MB) w/2048KiB Cache, CHS=16383/255/63, UDMA(66)

HALT. No sysrq, no shift+pgup, no response for power button.

Dmesg _without_ acpi=force:

hdc: ATAPI 32X CD-ROM CD-R/RW drive, 8192kB Cache, DMA

And so on.

I will try this next. ACPI was working flawlessly for me almost from
the beginning.
