The front led of my mid 2005 iBook is showing the PATA disk activity
after I added the following line to /etc/sysfs.conf

class/leds/pmu-led::front/trigger = ide-disk

and then restarted the /etc/init.d/sysfsutils service (from sysfsutils

You can also write 'disk' directly to the (pseudo)file
/sys/class/leds/pmu-led::front/trigger, but it will be valid just till
the next reboot.
