DV8000 laptop fc5 install - Critical Temperature Reached (0 C), shutting down.

I'm having some trouble installing FC5 on my HP DV8000 laptop.

It installs without a hitch, but on first boot it stops here:

This other page walks through a dv8000 fc5 install, and they get the
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 7 of bridge 0000:00:1c.0
messages, but not the more scary looking
Critical temperature reached (0 C), shutting down.
It hangs at the 'Starting udev' part. Anyone got any ideas what might be going wrong here?

Ok, problem solved:

1) press 'a' at startup to edit kernel arguments.
2) append 'acpi=off' to the end of the line (after rghb quiet)
3) press enter and boot should succeed.
4) once you have logged in, open a terminal, and as root, type: 'yum update pcmciautils'
5) After this, reboot and it should all work fine.

Turns out the two error messages aren't really that critical. My real problem was at udev, which causes the kernel to hang. Caused by pcmcia.
