Bios Bug: FADT size incorrect

I'm building a linux workstation (intel 965, E6700 duo core) and installed redhat 4.0 update 5 using 'linux all-generic-ide' at the boot prompt. Install ran smoothly (excpet for my cd/DVD is not reconized!) When I reboot the system I get a message:
'BiosBug: Legacy-free FADT detected But FADT size(244) INCORRECT"

I'm not sure if this is related to the "all-generic-ide' install, or another hardware problem. I "googled" this but not much information.

If your BIOS has the option to "Add Extra Tables for ACPI 2.0 Support", enable it. Otherwise, check with your manufacturer for a BIOS update.
