ACPI Patch for BIOS 25 Dell Inspiron 1100 w/ Fedora Core 1.0
 
Hi- I am trying to install an ACPI patch on my computer so that I can get a battery monitor. I seem to be able to bunzip it fine....
the file is acpi-20031203-2.4.25.diff.bz2
It asks me what file to patch (after I perform bunzip2 -c acpi-20031203-2.4.25.diff.bz2 | patch -p1) and I don't know...what should I type in? Is that everything? Will I then have a GUI telling me about my battery stats?
I need help!
Thanks,
Chris
I am using Kernel 2.4.22-1.2149.nptl

PS-I just downloaded this upgraded Kernel. What is the difference between this Kernel and the one that came with my Fedora Core CD? Also why do I have 2 Kernels showing up when I start my computer?
