As  an added data point, since the OP seems concerned about Athlon XP2600+,
I am running that processor in an ASUS A7N8X2.0 Deluxe m/b ACPI BIOS Rev 
and it powered down just fine following the CentOS 5.2 upgrade.  Here's 
the first stanza of grub.conf:
title CentOS (2.6.18-92.1.1.el5)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-92.1.1.el5 ro root=LABEL=/
        initrd /initrd-2.6.18-92.1.1.el5.img
