     I have a HP ze4145 laptop with a mobile Athlon XP 1800, running
    Mandrake 9.1. I've been wanting to use Linux as the only OS on my
    laptop - power management is the only issue though. I understand that
    the 2.4.21-0.13mdk kernel that comes with Mandrake 9.1 already has
    ACPI enabled (patch and all). But, this wouldn't work for me (system
    hangs during boot time). So, I recompiled the kernel, and disabled
    APM. Now, ACPI is enabled, and the system boots, but the processor
    itself could not be throttled.

    This is my /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/info
    processor id: 0
    acpi id: 0
    bus mastering control: yes
    power management: no
    throttling control: no
    performance management: no
    limit interface: no

    The processor only supports the C1 state. I have also tried patching
    other versions of the Mandrake kernel, but without success. Can
    someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? If I use a regular kernel from, would the regular Linux apps and drivers still work with

    My dmesg.out is at
    and my .config for the kernel is at
