IBM X30 hibernation problem

Hi, all,

I have installed Woody on my X30 and couldn't make the hibernation work
under Debian. I used
the hibernation utility Diskette provided by IBM:

And pressing Fn+F12 doesn't give any response at all. While Fn+F3, Fn+F4 all
work perfectly. The following is what I did:

After creating a 1G FAT16 primary partition(hda right after
the first partition, I used the IBM disk and created a file. But hibernation
still doesn't
work(Fn+F12 has no response at all, while Fn+F3, Fn+F4 all work properly).

My partition table look like this:
/dev/hda1   *         1      1944  14696608+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2          4986      5168   1383480   1c  Hidden Win95 FAT32 (LBA)
/dev/hda3          2084      4985  21939120    f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda4          1945      2083   1050840    e  Win95 FAT16 (LBA)
/dev/hda5          2084      2777   5246608+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda6          2778      2916   1050808+   6  FAT16
/dev/hda7          2917      3187   2048728+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda8          3188      4985  13592848+  83  Linux

Please note that hda4 is the partition I created for hibernation. Strangely
although it is physically right after the first partition, it's ordered as
hda4. And the
last physical parititon, the IBM recover hidden partition, is ordered as

And the IBM disk gives this message after I chose to create the file:

A file is created: C:\SAVE2DSK.BIN

But in Windows, I can see the file created resides in drive O(hda6).

So did I miss anything for the hibernation? I looked into
the BIOS and didn't find anything related.

Many thanks,

Wei Wang
