Thinkpad 21 / Xubuntu Linux boot problem.

I have two 800Mhz  T21. One with 256Mb Ram / one with 512Mb


I loaded Xubuntu on the hard drive on one and it works fine. 


I then tried to install it on the second and it did not work. I swapped the hard drives over and installed Xubuntu  on  the second one. I then returned the hard drive to the original.


The T21 always stops at the same position in the load.


[         9.077550] ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:03.[A] -> Link [LNKC] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11


The only difference I can see between the two computers is that the working one is using the BIOS 1.05 whereas the one which does not work is using the newest version of the BIOS - 1.16. I am going to attempt to downgrade the BIOS back to 1.05 on the bad machine.


Can anyone else give me any other ideas why this message may be coming up?
