Description of problem:
When I installed fedora test2 I noticed that acpi was disabled because my bios
is older than 1999. The message said to use acpi=force and it might work.
Guess what it works great. I have a tyan tiger 100 (S1832) motherboard in case
there is some sort database which tracks this information.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora test 2
2. acpi is disabled by default
3. due to my bios being older than 1999
Actual Results: the pc does not turn off
Expected Results: acpi should be enabled for this motherboard
