Yup, you're right. I followed those instructions and sure enough I had
an i586 kernel. I've installed the right one and toshiba_acpi is fine
now. Great. Thanks for the help Dave.
I do wonder if anyone *isn't* being affected by the rather large
anaconda bug, since I've checked on 3 separate fresh installs on 3
completely different machines (Laptop Celeron, a desktop Athlon and a
desktop Core 2 Duo) and all of them had the wrong kernel...
