hi fernando

i downloaded the 2.6.8 s7 kernel, and it boots ok, but one of the first
messages printed during boot-up is something like:

MCP BIOS unable to connect I/O timer

or something vaguely similar ... but if i disable acpi in bios, i don't
get the message. however, when i run 'dmesg' in a terminal, there's a
few messages about an 'unknown boot option'.

any idea what this means, or if it matters?
