Thanks for the ideas.  I did a little more playing around and found that
neither ctrl-c or the apm -s & work.  For some reason, it's as though my
command interpreter is just out to lunch.

If I do manage to switch to another terminal session (happened a couple
times, but not always) using <ctrl>+<alt>+F2, I can log in as root but
cannot execute anything.  Same problem.  It seems the kernel isn't
awake and working or something.

Do you think I have to re-compile the kernel for my particular laptop
support?  I know Dell can be weird about this stuff.  If so, how do I
go about downloading the source through yum?

Thanks for all the help.  I really do appreciate it!
