A quick and dirty way to do this, if you have a speedstep processor, is boot from USB toram and use the following:
# echo 7 > /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/performance
# hdparm -Y /dev/hda
This will put your CPU in the slowest, lowest power state and turn off your hd. Your battery will last a long time, but some things (eg compiling drivers) will work more slowly.
