dpkg -l lwat

as Klausade said:

You can change it in /etc/lwat/config.php use this line:
$allowPwSet = true ;

I think John's reply was more helpful for this issue than mines.. ;)

this is the relevant line:

I dont really know this hardware, but a quick check on 
http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ seems to say that it needs a fairly new kernel 
(2.6.32) and viafb... 

So it might very well be that this new laptop is not supported by pure lenny. 

You could give a lenny debian-installer with 2.6.32 a try first, its available 
here: http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/

If that failes, try squeeze with a 2.6.32 from sid, or pure sid. 

Remember to load the viafb module.
