I'm seeing this on an EPOX motherboard (with AWARD bios) as well.
it's worth noting that 0x5306 is the `CPU busy' APM command code,
while 0x5305 is the `CPU idle' command code..
now, in this case, either we're not making it into the APM BIOS at all
(which seems unlikely), or the BIOS isn't actually setting an error
code in certain cases. I really *don't* want to go disassemble the
BIOS to figure out wha's going on..
