Fedora Core 2 test 1 battery charge monitor

problems, problems, problems...*sigh*

I use Fedora Core 2 Test 1 on an Inspiron 1100 laptop. When I put a battery charge monitor (add to panel/utility/battery charge monitor) it says that a battery is not present. I did some hunting around on the internet, and found that adding "acpi=on" to the end of kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.1-1.65 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgh in /boot/grub/grub.conf removing "toshiba_acpi.ko" from /lib/module/2.6.1-1.65/kernel/drivers/acpi should fix the problem.

I did this and nothing happened. Did I miss something?

This is the line I have in grub.conf

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.3-1.91 ro root=LABEL=/ acpi=on hdd=ide-scsi

and it works
