Depends on the BIOS. If your machine has a Phoenix NoteBIOS, lphdisk
(available from a Deb archive near you) will format a partition (which
must be number 4, i.e., probably /dev/hda4) in the right way. Check the
boot messages from the BIOS (mine said something along the lines of
``can't find anywhere to suspend to, disabling this feature'' on boot
without the relevant partition) to diagnose the problem.
Apparently you can also suspend to a file in a FAT<something> partition,
but I don't know how to do this, since I got rid of any trace of FAT on
my system. Perhaps the BIOS/machine docs tell you how to do this?
