Question Re: NF-M2 nView / FC6 / Mythtv / Crash

First of all - thank you for a quick reply ! I did read the thread mentioned above before posting a question - I should have made that clear in my earlier post.

I am running the system with pci=nommconfig all the time. I am running 32 bit kernel, not 64 bit. The only thing I did not try was idle=poll (I will try that tonight and report results), otherwise, the BIOS is flashed to 1.1 (which is the latest version on the ABIT site). I dont see how idle=poll will solve Timer / IOAPIC problem. Is it a problem ? That is, is the following ok :
..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IOAPIC
...trying to set up timer (IRQ0) through the 8259A . failed.
...trying to set up timer as Virtual Wire IRQ... failed.
...trying to set up timer as ExtINT IRQ... works.

I get the above if I do anything but acpi_use_timer_override. Using acpi=off produces crashes repeatably within first 10 minutes of video playback.
