With this kernel arguments the system don't freezes up:

rhgb acpi=on pci=noacpi

The magic is mix acpid=on with pci=noacpi

can you attach the dmesg and /proc/interrupts from the
success and failure cases?  note that booting single
users should be sufficient to get this info.

Also, any change with updated kernel?

Comment 3 Len Brown 2004-03-24 13:54:59 EST
does this still happen with rhgb disabled?

try boot with nolapic, if it work like a charme is a duplicated bug

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
