ACPI should work.  It's not an issue on the SK8N.  In any case, it's a
BIOS issue, not a chipset issue.

If you meant APIC and not ACPI, it should work in mixed mode.  6.0 has
code which supposedly makes mixed mode unnecessary, but I haven't
tested it (I don't have a CPU for my SK8N right now)

Sound shouldn't be a problem; the nForce audio codec is ICH-compatible
and should work with snd_ich.  I'm not sure if I ever tested that,

If you're using the nvnet port, that's a known issue.  6.0 has a
native driver.

USB worked fine on my SK8N - well enough for keyboards, mice and
memory sticks, anyway.
