Please copy me on any comments, I am not subscribed to the list.

Attempts to interract with apm on Inspiron 2500 laptops produce results like
the following (KRUD/RedHat 7.2, but also occurs with 7.1).

Please let me know if there is other information that would be helpful...
it's been about 15 years since I did device driver work on 8086 based
machines, but I can probably figure out how to get you the information you
ask for.
