On the old thinkpads they used to use a partition of type a0, however it
seems that more recent thinkpads only support the DOS file suspend.
BUGGER.  However you may find that its an "undocumented" feature.  Try
creating the partition and see what happens.  I imagine IBM removed this
feature because people couldn't understand the existance of anything but
FAT partitions, this probably caused problems for re-installs.

Create a partition of type a0 and see what the BIOS says when you suspend.
If it doesn't work....then make a DOS partition and live with it.
