I didn't recommend lphdisk as its for phoenix bioses.  You probably will
find that the thinkpad bios will just ignore a lphdisk formated partition.
I was running on the complete off chance that the BIOS would "notice" the
partition and do something about it.  Although 99% *unlikely* its always
worth a try when times get desperate.

As an alternative (I just thought of) you could use the kernel patch to do
hibernation.  I can't remember the URL but if you cannot find it I'll dig
it out :)
