I doubt I am. The latest non-beta is 1013, 2004/09/09. The beta is
1014.002, 2005/06/28. From dmidecode:

BIOS Information
        Vendor: Award Software, Inc.
        Version: ASUS A7V8X-X ACPI BIOS Revision 1007
        Release Date: 11/13/2003

I am reluctant to upgrade the BIOS because if the process were to
fail, I would be out a motherboard, and the nearest computer store is
an hour's drive away -- and may not carry anything I would find useful.

I'd say your best bet is to update the BIOS.  I don't understand how a
CPU could fail due to updating the BIOS.

You could try booting with the noapic and/or acpi=off kernel
parameters and see if that helps.
