Guys, I have an MSI Wind u100 and I've installed backtrack 3 final to the hard drive. I've gotten everything to work exactly how I want it except for one thing. I got the wireless card to work, I got it to display in 1024x600 resolution, and I got slapt-get working. The only thing left is the battery monitor. I'm afraid it's going to take a lot more work...
When I go into the "laptop battery" settings, it tells me, "Your computer seems to have a partial ACPI installation. ACPI was probably enabled, but some of the sub-options were not - you neet to enable at lease 'AC Adaptor' and 'Control Method Battery' and then rebuild your kernel."
I've never had any experience with rebuilding a kernel. I have no idea where I would even start with this. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Start with these guides.

Those should be enough to help get you started.
Might also try
ubuntu battery monitor
You mean the applet which tells you the strength of your battery life? If you are having a battery problem with your laptop, use synaptic and reinstall "klaptop". That should fix any problems with your battery.
