On Fedora 7, you only needed 'pci=nomsi acpi=off' if you ran i386. It
wasn't necessary with x86_64 at all.

Of course, either way, grub didn't work and you had to resort to lilo

On Fedora 8 (x86_64 because I haven't bothered with i386 because of
Fedora 7 experiences), there was regression and it became necessary to
add the following kernel parameters to get it to boot 'pci=noacpi

I think I am getting some traction on bugzilla and other Dell Optiplex
320 / SB 600 owners should also pipe in to get this stuff solved...

This is the general bugzilla entry...

This is the bugzilla entry with kernel-developers...
