Hi all, I've gotten an eee Box, and have installed Fedora 9 on it. However, the strange thing is that kacpid is at ~75% when i run top, using the "intel" driver in xorg.conf does not allow me to set display resolution to 1024x768@24bits in KDE and downloading the latest Ralink drivers from the official site does not compile:

Anyone has any ideas how to resolve these problems? I'm currently booting the kernel with acpi=off option to prevent kacpid from hogging the CPU.

OT: Does anyone know how to configure samba so that I can access it in Windows via its hostname instead of IP address? I've got samba working via IP address, but using hostname does not work.
