    I'm not using a real install so I don't have to do any changes on the lilo.conf.
    My guess is that you forgot to setup your lilo.conf correctly: once you append the libata configuration switch your / will reside on /dev/sda1 not /dev/hda1 that's why the kernel will panic not finding any / to run on.
    Take a look at my syslinux.cfg: http://sid77.slackware.it/bt3/repo/extras/syslinux.cfg as you can see the changes= options points to /dev/sda2 which is the second partition on the eeePC ssd.
    If you use the combined_mode parameter on a real install you'll have to set up the lilo.conf accordingly but for such kind of installation you're on your own as it's not officially supported by BT3.

    I've got it running on my Eee 900. Not sure if it does anything, but hey, why not.

    UPDATE: Here's my syslinux.config and lilo.conf:

    #
    # syslinux.conf
    #

    PROMPT 0
    TIMEOUT 40
    DEFAULT /boot/vesamenu.c32

    LABEL BT3
    MENU LABEL BT3
    KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
    APPEND changes=/dev/sda2 vga=normal initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw chexpand=256 load=eeepc701

    LABEL safemode
    MENU LABEL BT3 safemode
    KERNEL /boot/vmlinuz
    APPEND combined_mode=libata vga=normal initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw

    MENU LABEL msramdmp
    com32 /boot/msramdmp.c32

    LABEL memtest86
    MENU LABEL Run Memtest utility
    KERNEL /boot/mt86p


    #
    # lilo.conf
    #

    boot=/dev/sdb
    prompt
    timeout=40
    lba32
    compact
    vga=769
    change-rules
    reset
    install=text
    image=/media/D:/boot/vmlinuz
    initrd=/media/D:/boot/initrd.gz
    label=Slax
    root=/dev/ram0
    read-write
    append = "ramdisk_size=6666 changes=/dev/sda2 from=/dev/sda1"

    at best it will enable the acpi support but, frankly, I'm not too sure about it :-P

    Hmm! My question was going to be will this work with the 901 but can see the answer is we don't really know?

    The 901 has a much better battery life compared to the 70x but would still be nice to approach closer to XP's power efficiency and runtime in BT3.

    sid77,
    So far the module seems very nice, but I have one question. When the screen is closed, the eee goes into a sleep mode, just like it would under the native Xandros Linux. However, it will not wake up when the touchpad or the keypad is touched. It requires a cold reboot. Is there some specific key combination that can be used to wake the eee?

    If it works on the 900, I imagine it should work on the 901.

    when the lid is closed it shut down the eee. there is no way to suspend BT3: like slackware 12.0, the stock kernel does not have CONFIG_PMU_SUSPEND enabled.
    Here's the relevant content of /etc/acpi/actions/lid.sh:
    Code:
    # Check if lid is closed..
    grep -q closed /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state
    if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        # ...then poweroff
        /sbin/shutdown -h now "Lid closed"
    fi
    note to self: hmm... maybe it's better to call the same functions used by powerbtn.sh to logout the user from kde
