Omnibook not using second battery


I have an HP Omnibook 6000 running debian testing. I have both a primary battery and a secondary battery installed. The secondary battery sits in the CD Drive bay. When running on battery power, the system will use up all of the primary battery, but refuses to run off of the second battery.

How can I tell if the second battery is even recognized? If it is not, what do I need to do to make it so. If it is, what do I need to do to make it work?

Thanks,

Raklet
