I upgraded an (old) system from sarge to etch, which was impressive, almost 
everything worked out of the box as in sarge (only better due to new 

The only flaw I saw is that after running "shutdown -h now" power is not shut 
down any more.

Since the system is old, it uses apm and after googleing for the problem, I 

append="acpi=off apm=power_off"

to /etc/lilo.conf and 

apm power_off=1

in /etc/modules

Now, this powers off the system again at the end of shutdown.

Not sure if there is an easy way to avoid that others have to search for this 
information as well. Little effort would be to add this to the release 
notes... and a big benefit for the guys with old hardware who read release 
notes ;-)

Many thanks,
