Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

A few suggestions: I take it you will try all permutations of these settings.
First of all, I would recompile the kernel _without_ generic support and with your chipset only. Go for edge triggered interrupts, leave the apic on in the bios but be ready to turn it off on the boot line. Then I would go for manufacturers, and driver authors and try for ideas.
Thanks for the suggestion. I'll certainly try rebuilding the kernel.
The manufacturer suggests setting ide0 to PIO, and disabling ACPI in the
BIOS, also supplying irqpoll and acpi=noirq to the kernel. I am in the process of trying this.
NB The same driver works correctly on the manufacturer's Intel Pentium III and M running 2.6.13-15-default (Suse 10.0) but we had to turn off ACPI in the BIOS to get interrupts working on the Pentium M. In my experience turning ACPI off solves quite a few problems!
