Adding boot options?

I have a relatively old computer with Feisty installed. At the initial 
boot screen it prints a message on the screen informing me that it is a 
pre-2000 bios and I need to add 'apci=force' to the boot menu (the 
computer doesn't shutdown completely - I have to hold the power button 
for several seconds for it to power off and then unplug it as it will 
sometimes power back on again after 30 secs. or so).

Q. How do I add the 'apci=force' to the boot menu?




P.S. Dapper had no similar problems when it was installed.
