I have a similar problem with the suspend/hibernate function under
CentOS 5 on my personal laptop (Acer Travelmate 8204). My latest LiveCD
respins, which are no longer based on the Adios Live CD project, have

I will need to test the hibernation functionality under the CentOS 5
LiveCD (version 5.00) later today to see how it behaves.
