No suggestions, simply a comment:

I'm usually one of those who adopts "new software" (Unix and Linux
alike) as soon as stable release versions have been confirmed by others
(I'm a coward, too :)

However, I've read so much negative about RH 9.0 and kernel 2.4.20 and
getting custom things to work, that I've stuck at much modified RH 7.2
and a custom kernel.org 2.4.19/ACPI. I'm totally dependent on my single
notebook at the moment, with its HSF modem. Things were otherwise when I
had access to a Xircom Linmodem PCMCIA card (driver by David Hines);
then I had "belt and braces", could use either. However, I've given the
Xircom card back to its owner.

Perhaps you could compile a kernel.org 2.4.19/ACPI kernel.org kernel
parallel to your 2.4.20, see what happens - boot on either. I keep a
couple of old kernel versions to boot on - if anything goes wrong ...
