Which OS and kernel are you using?  What CPUs are installed in your
front-end systems?

When AMD introduced their 65nm CPUs (like "Lima"), they bumped the CPU
version number to 8 (while the acpi-clockmod module stopped at 7). The
kernel in Fedora Core 6 at that time had this problem, which was fixed
when Fedora 7 came out.

Anyway, you may be using a kernel which is too old for that CPU version.
