for t 2.2.19 very well. Installing 2.4.16 with the same options

<*> Advanced Power Management BIOS support
[*] Enable PM at boot time
[ ] Make CPU Idle calls when idle
[ ] Enable console blanking using APM
[*] RTC stores time in GMT
[*] Allow interrupts during APM BIOS calls
[*] Use real mode APM BIOS call to power off

After booting the new kernel, apm says: Kernel build with no APM
support. /proc/apm does not exist!

append= apm=on in /etc/lilo.conf does not change anything

any ideas?

Have you accidentally enabled ACPI support? Can you post your boot messages?
You may also find that enabling APIC of any kind will brake the APM-support - as it did on my DELL Inspiron 8100 .
