SubjectRe: 2.6.0test4 ACPI with nForce2 "success"
Instead of turning the apic off in bios like I'm doing, either smp code 
or today's patch to turn apic off before on might do it for you. I have
to do something with apic to get my pci netcard to work and not get "irq
disabled". pci=noacpi wasn't it for me. Turning apic off in bios or
using smp code on uniprocessor is not all, I disable everything to get
errors and lockups to stop. Power management works. UDMA6 and irq
unmasking and ide options work.

If I turn off parallel and serial ports and usb as well, and remove cd drives, I don't get lockups or see netdev watchdog failure to transmit and disable irq7 along with netcard failure. Needless to say the onboard ethernet controller and audio don't work. But I have another reliable textmode file server with an MSI nforce2 board. There are a few "correctable errors" trapped with slightly underclocked overtested csl2 pc3200 ram running at 2 channel 166 = 333. Altogether a very fine agp8 textmode linux box. Ecstatically, I can copy and paste script text with a mouse, but of course it's on a ps2 port, not usb. USB code, when not logging errors, doesn't recognize usb mouse or keyboard either booted or hot-plugged. I can hibernate with textmode agp8, writing scripts, while somebody hacks nforce2 and nvidia geforce 4200ti--no, I will not dump 2.6 for a 2.4 kernel patched with nvidia driver--more important things don't work in 2.4 than 2.6! 6-channel surround silence and frozen pizza...with the cd's pulled out md might not lockup when copies overflow the drive buffer cache!
