As you can read in topic-start. This is the error I seem to get when booting my FC5: MP-BIOS bug: 8254 Timer not connected to IO-APIC. I've installed FC5 on my Acer 4005WLMi with no problems and till now, I don't seem to run into any errors or random freezes. But what those this error mean? Or better how can I fix it?

Many thanks in advance.

Same problem on Everex StepNote NM3900W. The system boots fine, though slow at spots if I have WiFi enabled... I'll be checking this thread for a solution, if there is any.

My new latop also complains at boot time, but no other problems so far.

My Everex seems to be flawless. An install of torsmo is nice with some execi scripts installed for eth0, ath0, CPU Temp, etc. I'm having a bit of a struggle getting used to the 1280x800 display as I'm used to 1280x1024...
