as with the locking append acpi=off to you lilo config and rebot and try loading the module but make sure you are using apic in the kernel.
Thanks for the pointer about acpi=off, I will try that when I can tomorrow. For the moment I have alsa up and running. Personally I think nVidia should make the solution for the chipset like they have for the gfx cards, that one works like a charm.
For the moment my main objective is trying to figure out if it is possible to wake this damn box up with WOL, after powerdown from linux. I guess I'll go bother the acpi people at sourceforge
