Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA No
I think we might have a winner here. Somewhere in one piece of documentation or another, I've seen that "allocate IRQ to VGA" must be enabled. Even though this one says "PCI VGA" instead, I would think it'd be worth a shot. The other thing is PnP Aware OS. That should always be set to No with Linux (and actually, sometimes with Windows it's not a bad idea). The difference between the two settings is that with it set to yes, the BIOS will delay initialization of some "nonessential" devices until the OS tells it how to initialize them. This is just about the most retarded way to do anything that I can think of. The OS should not be telling the BIOS what to do. With it set to no, the BIOS will initialize everything, and merely tell the OS where it put stuff.

Anyway, try flipping those both around, and see if it works any better. My guess is that the only thing you'll need to do is turn on "allocate IRQ", but turning off PnP OS is a good idea for other things.
