What stage are you at?  Are you just booting the install CD or have you
already installed and it is failing while booting from the hard disk?

Either way, when the boot menu comes up there should be an option to
boot without ACPI.  Press <SPACE> to pause the boot so that you can
review your options.

If you are still trying to install it may be that the installed system
will run ACPI just fine.
