Which section am I supposed to put this in? Also, which readme were you 
looking at. I downloaded the one from the same web page as the driver and 
couldn't find any mention of it.

I dont know how to change the frequency used.  I did try to change the colour 
depth but the server refused to start complaining about not knowning how to 
handle it (I can't remember the exact error but I tried values of both 24 and 
32).

I tried putting acpi=on in grub.conf. I had to also put pci=noacpi to get rid 
of a number of error messages.  However, I did still get errors complaining  
about toshiba_acpi.o module but it goes off the screen too quick and dmesg 
doesn't show it.

ACPI is now working though, because the battery icon in the systray now works 
right. (I tried sound again but it still isn't working).

Anyone got anything else I can try?
