as far as I know all the default kernels have apm disabled (I think it can
cause incompatibility problems for some machines) mainly as linux really
is installed on desktops that run off the mains and apm support is
_usually_ not required.

What you have to do is recompile the kernel (you seem to know this
bit) its actually quite easy, if you need step by step instructions I have
them from a previous post I archived away, and *remember* to also
recompile the pcmcia drivers for various technical reasons.
