Doh, just realised the module name is 'apm' not 'apmd', so try
'modprobe apm' instead.

Not necessarily. That _should_ test to see if it's compiled in, and if
not, load it. See if /proc/apm exists. If it does, then apm is already
in your kernel. If not, then it should be loaded on bootup, assuming of
course that the above snippet is ran on bootup (there may be earlier
checks that cause it not to be run).
