No, sorry, It's Slackware 8.1 and about half the boot scripts have been
remarked out.

That's great, I have been relying on USB...

No, but I will certainly so this!

I primarily have been using ACPI for startup & shutdown.  Startup will
always work when there is momentary contact to the power header.  ACPI
fails to load which causes it to not see the power button.  There is not
an ACPI directory under /proc, so ACPID has nothing to watch for (ex:
Momentary contact on the power button to initiate `shutdown`.
