Hi
Ever since I got a new motherboard(i845) and a new agp(nvidia FX 5200), I've been having trouble with linux distros. After much experimentation, I figured out that the problem was with my APIC, hence I boot with with noapic and nolapic kernel parameters. However with FC6, when I attempt to shutdown after unmounting filesystems, I get a bunch of hex codes and an EIP: clear_local_APIC_0x21.

The way I see it is that its dtrying to clear the local APIC which has been disabled(by the BIOS), so is there anyway I can make the shutdown sript bypass this step?
Thanks
