Hi Carr, good to see you trying to soft-land on Planet CCRMA... ;-)

Anyway, once you have the source list copied to the proper place 
(/etc/apt/sources.list) and also apt.conf you can do an "apt-get update" 
to see if you can contact the repository and everything is working. Then 
you can just jump to the kernel install page (if you don't want to update 
to the latest redhat updates first - that could take a long time, depends 
on what kind of connection you have). I just noticed I did not add an 
install incantation for the acpi enabled kernel, that would be:

apt-get install kernel-up#2.4.19-2.ll.acpi alsa-driver-2.4.19-2.ll.acpi 
alsa-driver alsa-utils alsa-tools

That should get the kernel and matching alsa drivers. Which Vaio do you 
have? It might not be necessary to use the special kernel but I guess it 
does not hurt either. Most probably you are the second person to try the 
acpi kernel (hmm, maybe the third). It works for me on a GRX...

Let us know how it works!
