i believe apm support is on the default configuration, but the kernel is
compiled with APM_DISABLED_BY_DEFAULT option (or something like that =)
so, if you want apm support you need to enable it at boot, appending
"apm=on" at LILO prompt. anyway, i'm not sure, but i think i read
something like that (after i compiled my kernel wuth apm support =)

i've a problem like that ... just a little mistake ... i compiled it with
IDE and ext2fs support both as a module, so the kernel failed on boot
b'cos it couldn't find /dev/hda, b'cos IDE support was on /dev/hda, an
IDE drive, of course =)
i've the same problem later, with ext2fs support ...
well ... that was my "experience" =)
