[PlanetCCRMA] acpi kernel reboot errors

I have added the pci=noacpi as you have said.  It seems that there is a 
cache of the original failed boot process, because when I tried to reboot 
using the acpi kernel, it instantly went to the "PCI: using configuration 
type 1" line with out cycling through the preceding processes.  Hmmm...

To answer you question, it boots fine with the original RH 7.3 install I 
did yesterday.  When booting with this kernel, I noticed that the line 
after "PCI: using configuration type 1" was "PCI: Sharing IRQ5..."  This 
may or may not be important.  If I try the non-acpi planet kernel, then I 
assume that I have to go back and change the source.list and apt.conf 
files?  Oui?


thanks for you patience
