Turn off ACPI support in the BIOS, then reinstall XP--that's the only method I'd recommend to do this. It's theoretically possible to just replace the HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) with the non-ACPI version, but doing so isn't guaranteed to work and you might leave your system in an unstable state.

Out of interest, why do you manually want to set IRQs? In my experience, most problems which people think are due to badly set IRQs boil down to using older (buggy) drivers.
