I built a new server about 10 days ago running CentOS 5.latest,
and it's been presenting a message shortly after booting:

irq 58: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)

Call Trace:

Disabling IRQ #58

Looking at /proc/irq/58, it apepars to be USB related:

	cat /proc/irq/58/smp_affinity

cat /proc/irq/58/smp_affinity

This is an Asus M4N75TD main board with 4GB non-ECC RAM, and AMD
Phenom(tm) II X4 925 Processor.  It has an ancient ATI Rage PCI
graphics board, booting into init 3 as it's basically headless.

I am definately not a hardware guy (hence the name of my
company:-).  Does anybody have any suggestions as to what may be
causing this?

This machine also powered off spontaneously yesterday evening
after 10 days of uptime (the previous system in this 4U chassis
was running SuSE Linux Enterprise 10, and died of a chipset fan
failure after 1,390 days uptime :-).  All major components are
new, including the power supply.  The only old component other
than the 4U California PC chassis is the original HD with its
partitions mounted read-only to get the original data.

Any suggestions?

An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which
unites statists of all persuasions.  They seem to sense that gold and
economic freedom are inseparable.  -- Alan Greenspan
