If this is a new aluminium PowerBook, the folks on #debianppc informed
me that I had to run 2.6 in order for X to work at all. Using benh's 2.6

Ctrl-Alt-Fn-F1, in that order. (At least, you have to press Fn after
Ctrl and Alt.)

pbbuttonsd lets you configure 'kbdmode = fkeysfirst' to use the
function-key meanings by default and have Fn activate the magic things
like brightness and volume instead, which is less annoying.
