I have this "slightly" older IBM Thinkpad. It has some internal devices
I never could make use of. Seeing the latest ACPI import, I thought I'd
give it a try again, but it still fails:

mainbus0 (root)
cpu0 at mainbus0: (uniprocessor)
cpu0: Intel Pentium/MMX (Tillamook) (586-class), 233.88 MHz, id 0x581
cpu0: features 8001bf<FPU,VME,DE,PSE,TSC,MSR,MCE,CX8>
cpu0: features 8001bf<MMX>
    ACPI-0162: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not get RSDP, AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES
    ACPI-0216: *** Error: AcpiLoadTables: Could not load tables: AE_NO_ACPI_TABLES
ACPI: unable to load tables: 2
pci0 at mainbus0 bus 0: configuration mode 1

Is this the way of the ACPI code to tell me this machine does not support
ACPI? Win9x/ME enables all devices just fine, but Win2K is not supported for
this machine. Is this IBMs way of telling me it does not have ACPI?
