This is done by apm. It sounds like you run a fairly stock set up, so
you should be able to get this working fairly easily.

Add the following line to your /etc/lilo.conf and then run lilo (both
must be done as root).


You may also need to add apm to the list of modules to be loaded at

echo apm >> /etc/modules
