Battery time waaaay off.

I have a brand spankin new battery that lasts 2 hours- I clocked it. Fedora core 5 thinks otherwise. It says that it will last 3 minutes. After about an hour of use, a cute little notification tells me that I have a critically low battery. I don't, so I click it away. It comes back in a minute. I click it away. It comes back.. and so on.

So, is there a way to fix this battery time-remaining calculation thing?

If not, how do I disable the annoying notifications?

You mean apmd? That didn't work.. If at all possible, I would just like to get rid of the notifications.. not the whole thing. It can tell what percent of the battery is left fine
