it very well might.  APIC and noacpi have gotten me past this very issue 
on many machines with this symptom.  If it doesn't work then Cent5 FC6 
just isn't going to work.  Try ubuntu 7.x and see if that works as well.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
