'modinfo yenta_socket' should tell you:

parmtype:       override_bios:uint
parm:           override_bios:yenta ignore bios resource allocation

See top of Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt for how to specify
kernel parameters.  Quick summary:

for a loadable module:  modprobe yenta_socket override_bios=1
(or probably can set it in /etc/modprobe.conf somehow)

on kernel command/boot line, add:

Note:  this option needs to be added to
Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt .
