Many newer systems use ACPI for PCI configuration and interrupt
routing. Without these functions, you don't have a bootable system.

Thee was a post earlier today mentioning that the new ASUS P4 mobo
requires ACPI to boot. I suspect that this is rapidly becoming the norm
for new motherboard BIOS implementations.
