    When you boot from the CD, at the kernel boot options, enter a new attribute: acpi=force. On RedHat systems, the kernel options part is often shown at the screen that first appears after you boot from CD.

    Type linux acpi=force.
    There are a few other options. Check out which works for you.
    linux ide=nodma
    linux acpi=off
    linux acpi=off apm=off
    linux nofb
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
