No, its enabled.

Further testing on 2 other system (Intel 810 series MB and ASUS P4) also
fail to power off with Debian 3.0.r0 (with the changes noted).  Also fails
with Mandrake 9.0 beta (where I reported the problem to the 'cooker') and
Red Hat - Limbo beta (where I filed the report with bugzilla). As I said all
power down with Win9X.  Perhaps someone will come up with the answer.

Thanks for the help....
