      I don't know where I got this tool, ask google for 'i8k-utils
      download'. Or become a member of this group; AFAIK the
      i8k-utils are in the files section.

      Compile and install them. I think with ./configure, make and
      make install as root.

      That's the mailer which breaks the lines.

      <Start line>modprobe i8k<end line>

      <Start line>i8kbuttons -m "amixer -q sset Master,0 toggle" -u
      "amixer -q sset Master,0 5%+ unmute" -d "amixer -q sset
      Master,0 5%- unmute" & <end line>

      On SuSE 8.0, I used /etc/init.d/boot.local. If this file does
      not exist, you should create. Not sure, if all distribution
      read this file on boot-time.
