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.

I've never seen this problem myself but according to the kernel code (linux/kernel/irq/spurious.c) something is generating spurious interrupt signals which are not being handled correctly. Maybe 'cat /proc/interrupts' will give some clue what is happening? You could also try using the BIOS to disable any hardware (like the wifi) that you don't need.
Thanks MB, I just read an article on RH's archieve site about upgrading to AS3.0 drivers over using tg3 for the NIC I have. So I just DLed the new Broadcom drivers and will see if this does it. Of course it was also (the article) based on the 2.4 kernel and I'm running 2.6...
I did cat /proc/sbin and looked into the IRQ directories, but nothing was present for the IRQ's in question. I'll dig a little more in the /interrupts directory and see what I can find.
I do use the WiFi when I have XP up and would like to get it going for the Linux boot, but if not, well I guess not.
