I get the same message with kernel-2.6.24.4-64.fc8.  It is causing X to blank in
and out then freeze my computer completely.  I have an ATI graphics card. 

Comment 5 Kyle Pablo 2008-04-30 16:10:28 UTC
I updated to the latest kernel-2.6.24.5-85.fc8 and I still get "Aperture too
small (32 MB).

dmesg output with current kernel & 64-bit Sempron CPU.

I get the same error message, only in my case it simply says:
Booting the kernel.
Aperture too small (32MB).
Red Hat nash 6.0.19 starting.

Closing.  Don't receive this message in F9 or F10.
