Beta1 Release notes:
<quote>
The Red Hat Linux 9.0.93 kernel includes support for ACPI (Advanced
Configuration and Power Interface). When booting the Red Hat Linux
installation program from CD (and booting the installed system) this
kernel uses ACPI on some systems (depending on certain factors such as
whether the hardware supports ACPI and the date of its BIOS ACPI
implementation). ACPI is used for device enumeration (but not for
sleeping). You can disable ACPI by using the following boot option:

acpi=off

Beta2 Release notes:
<quote>
The Fedora Core 0.94 kernel includes support for ACPI (Advanced
Configuration and Power Interface). By default, ACPI support is disabled;
it can be enabled by using the following boot-time option:

acpi=on

When enabled, ACPI is used for device enumeration, but not for sleeping or
reducing power consumption.
