I replaced the kernel in the installed mulinux (inside \startup\boot\)
but the laptop continued freezing with that kernel too.
So i decided to deltree the directory and reinstall everything,
booting the installation with your apm-enabled kernel,
but i got this error:

"Installing BOOT Segment...
mount : could not find any loop device, and, according to /proc/devices,
this kernel does not know about the loop device.
(if so, then recompile or 'insmod loop.o'.)

abort: mounting BOOT segment
s)hell r)eboot"

What's up ?

PS the interesting fact is that if i choose shell, then the laptop goes into shell
and it does *NOT* freezes like it used to. I worked for some minutes in the shell
going inside/outside dir, copying file and so on without a freeze. The only
strange thing is that the function-keys (battery,bios config etc..) werent working,
btw the system was usable (and from the dmesg i saw that the kernel correctly
detected the APM-stuff)
