Nope, I'm all set now. I compiled my LFS with 2.4.25, which was the latest kernel at the time. I didn't patch the kernel at all, just compiled as is. Well I downloaded the acpid-1.0.3 package, compiled, installed, started the acpid daemon, and ran the acpid_listen app. The stock kernel at 2.4.25 with a dell poweredge 2650 did not acknowledge the pressing of the power button.

I recompiled the kernel, and ran acpid_listen. All was well. I could now see the events come in. I configured my acpid events and all is well.
Problem fixed. Pressing the powerbutton now shuts my server down.
