[wellylug] Problem powering off an ATX system

The kernel in Xandros 2.0 is 2.4.22.  They list one upgrade in their
automatic flow.  I suspect it's to a later 2.4.x kernel.

If I have to do the upgrade, then she can't maintain the computer via
Xandros's own upgrades.  She is in Australia, and quite sensibly won't
accept the hassle of dealing with it.  I think she's wise.

I chose Xandros for her machine as hopefully having the least
interaction.  They seemed to have their system worked out.  I figured I
was paying for them to deal with the software - it's worth it to me in
this case.

I'd rather upgrade her hardware to a known standard than screw around
with the software.  So, any information about power supplies and ATX
mother boards and settings that worked or didn't is most interesting of
