Help with ACPI and Kernel upgrade in SuSe 9.0


I downloaded an HSF modem driver from linuxant...it works but after about 8 minutes of browsing the web the entire system freezes up. According to their website i need to install "better" ACPI support, disaple it, or upgrade the Kernel to 2.6.

Which of these is most likely to work?

Which of these should i Try first?

I have SuSe 9.0 Pro

Disabling it would be the easiest. Just add 'acpi=off' as one of the options at boot. I think getting 2.6 and getting 'better' acpi support are pretty much the same, since you'll probably have to recompile your kernel either way.

Open /etc/lilo.conf with a text-editor as root. Look for all the 'append=' lines. This is where you put options. Example:
An 'append' line:

append="option1 option2"

Adding 'acpi=off':
append="option1 option2 acpi=off"

Just look for all the 'append=' lines and put 'acpi=off' in them. Windows doesn't have an 'append=' line, so it won't be affected.
You will have to run 'lilo' as root to apply changes.
