[PlanetCCRMA] Laptop Power Management - cpufreq

Hi all,

I'm running FC1 and kernel 2.4.24-1.ll.rhfc1.ccrma on a Thinkpad T23 laptop 
(Pentium III Mobile).  I just recently noticed that cpufreq does not work 
and that some kernel modules don't exist with this ccrma kernel, 
specifically speedstep-centrino, speedstep-lib, and speedstep-ich.  The 
reason I even got so far as to figure this out is that I realized lately 
that when doing "cat /proc/cpuinfo" that the cpu speed wasn't changing with 
AC power or not.

Is there something I'm missing and cpu frequency is controlled by some other 
means?  Or are these modules simply not in the default kernel binary and 
source (couldn't find it here at least)?

Any help on this would be appreciated!
