	Hello Jim,
	I'm not sure if anybody got back to you on this...  Anyway,
it's hard to say specifically if 5.2.1 will improve the situation for
you, I'm not intimate with ACPI.  I would suggest you download the
boot floppies and see if it works out.  Please also send the
follow-ups to the -current list.
