Yup, and none of that works -- I've got a Pentium M with speedstep
successfully running, so I'm aware of the interface, etc. Was wondering
if something changed in the meantime that I missed... I'll leave this
thread out there in the hope that someone can shed some light, or set
me on the right path...

at sh prompt:
kamloops# sysctl machdep.est
sysctl: second level name 'est' in 'machdep.est' is invalid
