If you selected bare.i as the kernel during installation, you need to recompile the kernel with CONFIG_ACPI=y

If you selected bareacpi.i then enable it as per the previous post

acpi

Paxmaster, there is another way.

CD #2 from the boxed set has the kernel you need on the /kernels directory.

in /kernels/bareacpi.i are the files; bzimage, config and System.map.gz

gunzip System.map.gz and move that to /boot/System.map-acpi-2.4.26

next move bzImage to to /boot/vmlinuz-acpi-2.4.26 and config to /boot/config-acpi-2.4.26

remove the symlink /boot/System.map then creat a new one pointing to the new System.map

edit /etc/lilo.conf
image = /boot/vmlinuz-acpi-2.4.26
root = /dev/hda3 (or where ever you root is)
label = Linux-acpi
read-only

then run the lilo command

You may want to disable the APM section in /etc/rc.d/rc.M

Good Luck

where to put kernel image

When you posted "too late i already compile 2.6.9", are you still working with 2.4.26 or are you working to get the 2.6.9 kernel to boot?

I have only worked with the 2.4 series of kernels.

With the 2.4.26 kernel, copy the bzImage in /boot, and give it a unique name.

then edit /etc/lilo.conf so that the name given to the kernel is set like the following:
image = /boot/name (this is the name you gave the kernel)
root = /dev/sdb3 (or where ever you have your root partition)
label = make up a name that will show up in the Lilo boot screen
read-only

run the command lilo after all this to set the changes in place.

reboot, and you should be good to go.

Way to go

Paxmaster

I apologize for responding so late. It was my time to run on the tread mill. Old people need that you know.

Never the less, you have really covered some ground yourself.

Congratulations on your fix.
