    However, in my case linux then says:
    APM BIOS version 1.1 Flags 0x0c (Driver version 1.2)
    No 32 bit BIOS support

    Also, how would I re-enable BIOS APM support after booting linux?

    Personally I think Phoenix NoteBIOS sucks terribly. However, I am
    stuck with it for the time being.
