I'm not going to count the lines, but it is in the program listing for "power.s", here is the context:
.type power, @function
pushl %ebp           #save old base pointer
movl %esp, %ebp      #make stack pointer the base pointer
subl $4, %esp        #get room for our local storage

movl 8(%ebp), %ebx   #put first argument in %eax

The comment should read:
"put first argument in %ebx" (instead of %eax)
