Default Friends don't let friends use ACPI

ACPI and the various Nforce2 chipsets don't play well together. ACPI is listed as "experimental" code in the kernel. My suggestion would be to pass ACPI=off to the kernel and avoid a lot of trouble.

If you don't need ACPI, give it a pass. The whole ACPI section of the kernel is being/has been reworked in 2.4.2X and in the 2.6.0 series and it doesn't appear to be ready for prime time with the Nforce2 boards.

Fix time frame - unknown by me. You can always read the kernel development threads and watch/contribute. http://hypermail.idiosynkrasia.net/linux-kernel/
