HP Vectra XU (Pent III 350)
64meg Memory
Matrox video card

CDROM upgrade from v6.1 to v7.0 Redhat

PROBLEM:
After upgrading, the system runs fine for several minutes then the screen 
goes blank and stops responding to any key or mouse activity.  No remote 
login is accepted and the machine must be "hard reset" causing file 
corruption.

CULPRIT:
The Power management features of the HP Vectra are causing the system to 
hang.  This problem didn't exist in previous RedHat releases.

WORK AROUND:
Press F2 during boot up to access the bios settings.  Choose "POWER" from 
the top menu and disable all power management features.  Save the settings 
and the problem will go away.

Does the kernel boot parameter (added at the lilo boot prompt) apm=off help?

Example usage:

	LILO: linux apm=off

(Sorry, doug.  Just hadda ask :)
