hello

I hope I'm posting ont he right list.  I've seen many things in the 
archives about this issue, but nothing has fixed the problem yet.

System is a PE6450 4xpentium 3, running fedora core 5.  After a 
reboot, it just hangs.
I tried upgrading the BIOS.  No help. (but now it complains about 
firmware being out of date, and I can't find the firmware on the 
download site).

I tried apm=power_off. no help.

THen I tried ipmi. I've tried several of the options on this list but 
I keep getting:
FATAL: Error inserting ipmi_si 
(/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp/kernel/drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_si.ko): 
No such device

and on the logs:
ay 13 16:19:00 localhost kernel: IPMI System Interface driver.
May 13 16:19:00 localhost kernel: ipmi_si: Trying "kcs" at I/O port 0xca2

May 13 16:19:00 localhost kernel: ipmi_si: Unable to find any System 
Interface(s)


Any thoughts?


thanks
mickey
