Hi Tim. I was also helping the OP with problems booting Kubuntu, and by 
coincidence had just had a kernel update on my Kubuntu install, and certainly 
the new kernel in /boot/grub/menu.lst had replaced "quiet splash", which I'd 
removed, and didn't show the "acpi=off".

Your no doubt correct in the case of Fedora. I know I've a whole bunch of 
updates that need doing on Fedora 8, including a kernel update, so I'll check 
that post update.

All the best.
