Use acpi=force. Len at intel has been fixing this upstream. Its a 2.4
fix that got dropped by mistake from 2.6

Comment 2 Erin Essig 2004-10-01 22:06:11 UTC
acpi=force does not work for me.  

Here's the message: 

No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 000:00:0c.1
Unable to set IRQ for PCI Interrupt Link [PRQ3] (likely buggy ACPI
BIOS). Aborting ACPI-based IRQ routing.  Try pci=noacpi or acpi=off.

Is this a problem with my bios settings?
