I have the same problem with my ASUS P5A. Ancient BIOS with no updates
in years. It works with ACPI and not without. (jhb is looking at why
it fails and I suspect that it may be linked to problems with the floppy

In any case, the fix about (see man page, UPDATING, and mail archive for
documentation) will de-blacklist the BIOS.
