I am working with a I8600c as well.
I tried to figure things out myself ... but I searched the web
without success. Instead I got a little bit confused.
It would be very kind if you can help me answering my following
How did you create your partition?
Can I do it with fdisk?
What kind of system id (hidden/os2?) does it need?
Which version of swsusp did you use?
What else do I need to consider, except
Is it right that by using swsusp I don't need s2d or phdisk?
Thank you for your help
