Sorry, don't know the verb "oops" :-) couldn't find it in dictionary.

But checked it again, I could load the battery module without probs,
when I loaded the ac module, there was a memory fault loading ac, but ac
was loaded anyway. In lsmod battery is unused, ac is "initializing"
forever.

Until now I didn't found stability probs (ok, most of the time I have to
work, with RHL 9), but it seems not to work as I would expect or hope it
would work. On the other hand, I don't know how to use it  :-)
