I had another thought. Are you using the very latest BIOS update for
this motherboard? My new Asrock motherboard came with the 1.00 BIOS, and
I immediately updated it to the 1.40 BIOS before even trying to boot
Fedora Core 4 which was already installed on the hard drive I put in
this system. 

I also have an earlier Asrock motherboard, the Dual939-SATA2, which came
with the 1.20 BIOS and it didn't recognize my Athlon 64 X2 4400+ on that
board until I updated it to the 1.4 or 1.5 BIOS. This board is updated
to the 2.20 BIOS now.

If Asus has put an updated BIOS out on its web site, I suggest you
update to it.

Also, did you check your motherboard manual carefully to see what the
default settings for ACPI are?
