I am not 100% sure but to inable the C1halt patch for 2.6.5 (it was included in 2.6.6) you add as a boot parameter idle=C1Halt

if you still get hangups after trying the acpi_skip_timer_override add idle=C1halt (this may do nothing.. you might find the answer hunting through the linux kernel mailing list @ www.lkml.org)

your /etc/lilo.conf will look something like this:


boot=/dev/hdc
install=menu
vga=normal
default="266"
prompt
timeout=50
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw


image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.6
label=266
root=/dev/hdc1
read-only
optional
append="acpi_skip_timer_override idle=C1halt"
vga=normal
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.6.img
