FreeBSD Version: 5.2

I have previously posted in regards to the shutdown command not powering =
off
my computer. The command I used was:

shutdown -p now

The system would simple get to the point where it stated "Press Any Key =
to
Reboot". This problem did not exist under Windows. The system would =
power
off without incident using Win2K.

Upon further investigation, I have discovered the following entries in =
the
'dmesg' file"

ACPI-0159: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not get RSDP, =
AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES
ACPI-0213: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not load tables:
AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES
ACPI: table load failed: AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES

I have no idea what that means, but I assume that it has something to do
with the problem I am experiencing. Perhaps someone might have some idea
what is happening and how to correct it.

Thanks!
