Question Where are the powerswitch archives?

In the past (1 - 2 years ago) I downloaded the powerswitch module so that I could operate a portable file server using Samba without a head (monitor or keyboard) and perform a clean shutdown by just pressing the power button. It is a great product, but unfortunately since that time, the system was rebuilt and I forgot to save the powerswitch files before hand.

Now, regardless of my efforts searching on the web, I cannot locate them anywhere. Does anyone have these or can refer me to a site where I can download them again?

No, unfortunately the powerswitch link you posted is for a parallel port controller, ie. a means to control the power to up to 8 different devices.

The drivers I'm interested sense when the power switch is pressed on an ATX power supply. Once pressed, instead of powering the box down immediately and corrupting the filesystem, they perform a "shutdown -h now" before killing the power.

Does anyone have this package, or an equally elegant way of doing this. Again, my goal is to create a headless file server, thus I need to make the box easy to shutdown (without corrupting files).
