thank you very much for your help. Now I have tried the CentOS 4.4
LiveCD with the following result.

# cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state
state:  open

I am happy, it works!
But this also means that CentOS 4 must be installed on my already
installed CentOS 5 notebook. I suppose to use a CentOS 4 kernel under
CentOS 5 is not recommendable?
