My experience with my previous thinkpad is that the laptop runs cooler
with a 2.4 kernel than 2.6. My iBook runs rather hot for a 1.2 GHz
processor, 46-48C even when the system is practically idle. The
hard-disk is particularly hot at ~50C. Hence I want to try the 2.4
kernel and see if it makes any difference to the heating problem.
