ACPI: s3/pae do not like each other..

So I just installed the new fedora core 2 on my box to play with. So far so good, but I'm having one _huge_ problem that I cant find any info/help on. I've googled/searched this board aswell and have gotten nothing. Hopefully someone can help. Whats going on is every time I boot this machinejust before it actually starts to boot i get the

uncompressing Linux....ok, Booting kernal (witch is normal)

then i get this line under it

'ACPI: s3 and PAE do not like each other for now, s3 disabled'

then the machine will hang for about 5 mins, spit out some ATA errors then start booting normaly.

Ive checked with guys on irc/google and have come to that ACPI is somehow power related? ... someone said it might also be something to do with having over 4gigs of ram... but I only have 512. Because of the errors I'm assuming it might have something to do with my 250gig SATA drive?... oh, and when i boot into win xp it works fine :/

Thanks in advance for any help.
