I've just been through with Dell support with this issue, and they said
that the version of Linux we are running (Fedora Core 2) is not
supported by them, so we are SOL :/
Luckily I have some spare Adaptec 39160 cards I pulled out of a server
since it was upgraded to fibrechannel, so if setting "acpi=off" doesnt
fix it, I'll try sticking in one of the cards instead.
