I was able to get apm to work (aside from some incompatabilities with
my hardware) under 2.4.10. I compiled it as modules, ISTR compiling it
directly into the kernel under 2.4.9 didn't work well. 

Also, if you have ACPI support compiled into your kernel it will
inhibit APM from loading and you will not see /proc/apm.
