Does your kernel support ACPI at all ? Try loading some ACPI modules before starting the acpid.I\'m so tired .....
First thing to do is go to LILO configuration in the MCC, and go through the entries chcking the box enable acpi , or at least the one you want to try. Reboot and you should be good then. This one got me for ages!!
Also you can then configure the APM service to not come up on boot, as you will be relying on acpi and acpid services.
I tried everything in the book to make it work and never did so I gave and a replaced with fc3 which works fine on my laptop.

Re: ACPI problems with mdk 10.1
I am having the exact same difficulty. I did urpmi acpi acpid and it installed all the ACPI support thingies. I enabled ACPI in my bootloader (LILO with text) and set everything going.
When the machine goes to turn off, I get a general protection fault fef8 [#1] and the machine goes totally awol. It says I have a Bad EIP value.
I disabled ACPI, turned it off in the bootloader and tried APMD, still to no avail. The same thing happened. General Prot. Fault, Bad EIP.
The strange thing is, APM is turned on in my BIOS, and everything else looks totally normal. I am an ex windows XP user and PC Windows Engineer, but as for Linux, I know squat diddly, minus a bit more.
If anyone can help me sort this lump of *bleep* out before I junk it and go back to windows, please do. I like Linux and would like to get the machine working properly. But if I have to resort back to XP Pro, so be it!
In short... Help...!
I solved it..... I solved it......... I solved it ...... installed FEDORA 3
acpi=ht always worked for me
so put that in your boot/lilo.conf
