I just installed NetBSD-1.6/i386 on an HP Pavilion zt1230 laptop and have
only had a few snags.(*)  The one I'm currently dealing with is that APM
does not seem to be discovered.  I built a new kernel with apm0 at mainbus0
defined, but on bootup I see no apm discovery output, and apmd fails to
open /dev/apmctl.  Any ideas on how to get power management working on this

1.) NVRAM century was off; fixed with setting nvr_update_century in DDB.
2.) S3 ProSavage PN133 not detectable by X -configure; fixed by patching
xf86PciInfo.h to include #define PCI_CHIP_S3TWISTER_P 0x8d01
