Other than waiting patiently, I don't think that there is actually a
good solution to this problem right now.  Turning on ACPI support
kills access to the floppy drive on quite a few motherboards and for
most available system versions.  

There was this thread on [EMAIL PROTECTED] quite recently, which
offers a glimmer of hope that a fix is on the horizon, but no
indication when, or indeed, if, anything will be MFC's to 4.x:
