Going from memory...

Device Drivers -> IDE -> scroll down to the PowerMac drive controller entry, when that's enabled you should get the appropriate option. But, I think they're deprecating the old "Use PowerBook sleep LED as IDE HD Activity light" option soon (as of 2.6.17-.18ish)in favor of a new LED control method, which I'm drawing a blank on how to set up. I'm still on 2.6.17 on my Powerbook G3 Firewire, so I wouldn't know. When I get home, I'll build the 2.6.19-rc1 and confirm how to set this up.

It's all right, the option has been deprecated on 2.6.19-rc1, and I don't find the new option. :'(

Silverpower, did you find the option???

Thanks.
