You should have the apmd package installed. You should also (probably) pass apm=on (and perhaps apci=off) to the kernel when you boot (as a boot parameter, check Grub or Lilo documentation).

I didn't have to edit any specific files to get it running.

Yes, you will probably run into problems... APM should work fairly well. You may have problems resuming from a suspend (apm --suspend). Depending on the problem youmay have to unload/load USB and/or sound modules (as an example).
