Re: nforce go 430 sound problems
Well, acpi=off is a bad thing on this laptop. If you're having problems with getting a distro to install and boot, I'd suggest getting the FC5 respin from fedoraunity if you like RH based distros. Then update the machine (including kernel) and turn off rhgb option in the boot line.
Wireless and sound and power management and all kinds of things work really nicely now.
If I'm rambling a bit, it;s because I've had about 7 to 9 hours sleep over the past 4 days...
