if you added the 'pci=noacpi' kernel boot parameter to the
'/etc/lilo.conf' file, please make sure that you have run the 'lilo'
command after you have made the modification to the file, then reboot
your computer. Please read the 'lilo' manual page for more information.
It is posible that the problem is related to IRQ routing and the
'pci=noapci' will disable ACPI for IRQ routing which is required on some
machines. This is very unlikely that you have a conflict with the
