That is normally a flag you can set in the boot file for GRUB, so edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf file and add the acpi=off option into the kernel line, or better, copy and paste your first menu entry, then change the menu title to acpi=off and also add that to the kernel line, that way you still have the old entry in case it doesn't work. Once you have checked that it works you can remove the old menu entry.
you're talking about editing DSDT.  there are many HOWTOs for this, e.g. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1036051
