I have spent hours reading this and trying to read 'between the 
lines' already, before I asked here...

yes.  that is why I turned to asking.

Fine. I am even willing to run it completely after the install.  But 
what do I do for creating the partition?   Do I just do a dummy mount 
point like /suspend  ?  An fstype of ext3?  And how do I specify a 
primary partition (and do primaries have to come before ext3 
partitions?  Have not found text on this.)

And then use some other tool ????  that will remove the mount point 
and change the fstype to a0 before running lphdisk?

Or do I leave part of the disk not in a partition and use some other 
tool to prepare the partition for lphdisk?
