I'm getting an IRQ 19 Error Nobody Cared.

Google tells me to boot with irqpoll, but I'm not sure how to do this.

I'm on Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS.

Assuming you're using Grub Legacy (and not Grub2) :

Edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file.

Search for the relevant menu entry at the end of the file, it looks like that :

title Ubuntu 8.04, kernel 2.6.24-16-generic
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=UUID=c8acb88f-fb57-4ebc-ba34-56de426a34f0 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-16-generic
quiet

Add the irqpoll kernel option at the end of the third line :

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-16-generic root=UUID=c8acb88f-fb57-4ebc-ba34-56de426a34f0 ro quiet splash irqpoll

Save the file and reboot your computer.
