Thank you for your suggestions about recompiling the kernel to include
APM support. Could I ask you a follow-up question to your messages?

I have tried running 'make config', 'make menuconfig' and 'make xconfig',
but I always get the same error, "No rule to make target 'config'".
Running 'make -p' shows no entries under the "Make data base", which I
suspect is related to the error message. 

I hope this isn't an utterly ignorant question--I am trying to read as
fast as I can, but Unix just seems to be getting bigger and more complex
at an equal or greater rate. ;-)
