This business of standard Red Hat kernels very often gives problems. You
still haven't followed the inhstructions for "if things go wrong." Do
'hsfconfig -d' and send the file to this list.

I'm afraid only Marc can help you, I can only repeat what I've said
before: That compiling your own kernel from source with ACPI support and
then compiling your own driver from the .tar.gz source file would
probably work, but I don't think it's fair to expect you to do that, or
any "new" Windows-to-Linux user, for that matter.
