Boot hangs if acpi_osi=Linux enabled in grub

I am trying to get fedora 17 to work on my gateway nv78 laptop, and it is being an uphill struggle. At the moment, I can successfully boot into fedora if I leave the nomodeset option in my boot command list. However, if I remove it, my screen goes blank. If I add in acpiosi=Linux, I can see the screen, but the boot hangs. If I remove quiet from the command list, the last message displayed is "ADDRCONF(NETDEVCHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready" Nothing happens after this.

What do I need to do to get things working? The laptop has integrated intel 4500mhd graphics, and the wifi card is the intel wifilink 5100agn

The nomodeset bit reminds me of this bug (FC18, FC17, FC16).

Try removing it and the rhgb, and not adding acpi_osi=Linux (that can break a lot of things)
