Hi Matt, I am having this problem as well, I am using the ATI X300 video
card fyi.  I am still very much a noob in linux and ubuntu so could you
please describe what turning acpi=off and noapic will do, and perhaps
how to do it?  The freezes happen sometimes after 30 min of a fresh
boot, maybe 20 hours.  No pattern or real cause and I have NO idea where
to troubleshoot or look for solutions.  Thanks!
