Compile a kernel from benh and install pbbuttonsd and powerprefs on it.
There are packages in sid.  Should work out of the box.

I found the pbbuttonsd and powerprefs (http://freshmeat.net/depends/download-all/21864/). Thanks!

What will benh's kernel do (that the default Debian 3.0 kernel doesn't)?
From Ben's PenguinPPC page:

"My recent kernels have a feature for Rage128 based PowerBooks to drive the external VGA connector for mirroring."
