Description of Problem:
Booted from "bootnet.img" on a HP Brio, started an FTP install. Default install
type highlighted was "laptop" despite this being very much not a laptop; also,
although I selected "custom" install, deselected all the comps and added about
half a dozen server-type packages (squid, junkbuster, bind, caching-nameserver,
openssh etc) when I rebooted apmd was running (not desirable or necessary -- why
was it even installed?)
Ran into another bug when trying to erase the apmd package, will log that
Is there a pcmcia controller in the system.
No, but there is an ACPI controller listed amongst the PCI devices. So,
/proc/apm exists; is that what you look for?

Can you run the problem called 'probe' from the kernel-pcmcia-cs package and
attach the output? We default to 'laptop' if we detect a pcmcia controller
[root@staryu root]# /sbin/probe
PCI bridge probe: not found.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
Databook TCIC-2 probe: at 0x240: not found.
I take it there's another package I need to install?
No thats ok.
Could you boot the installer, and once you get to the screen where 'Laptop' is
selected, press cntl-alt-f2 to go to VC2.
Then try the following at the commandline:
print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_SOCKET, kudzu.BUS_PCI, 0)
and send me the output.
Then hit cntl-d, then run the 'probe' command and send me the output.
These are the two tests we do to see if you have pcmcia in your system,
Will do. Have to get the machine out from the cupboard under the stairs first
