Emachines M5310 CPU Freq Control, ACPI, Poor Video, Volume Buttons

I need help with getting my Emachines m5310 to work with SuSE linux 9.0. My ACPI is only partially working, I cannot control sleep, hibernate, etc. Also the CPU runs at full power all the time, I'd like to be able to control this like in windows xp. And the last two things are that my DVDs play fine but the quality is a bit low as with GL Screen savers. And the physical volume buttons on the computer don't work. Any help with any of this would be appreciated. I'm new to linux and am running kernel 2.4.21-192 i686. I would like the simplest solution possible. I also don't know anything about compiling a kernel or whatever. Thanks

Suse 9.0 has all acpi ready for you to configure and use.

All you actually needed to do to control the screen brightness, sleep, hibernate, cpu throttling. Is upgrade to KDE 3.2.1, run klaptop, and configure klaptop. Done.

Thanks for the quick reply. I will try this. As for the video, it looks like some kind of interlacing or something when DVD's are played.
