I installed Fedora Core 4 to a pentium 3.  When I try to boot it I get a 
picture of Tux and an error to this effect:

ACPI:  BIOS age (2000) fails cutoff (2001).  acpi=force rqd to enable ACPI

The IDE drive light comes on briefly after that, then it doesn't do 
anything as far as I can tell.  I had no problem with the installation, 
and I don't recall setting any power management options.  Suggestions?
