Thanks Akemi, suspend and hibernate seem to work with your kernel. 
Funnily enough it's only KDE3 that doesn't accept my self-compiled 
kernels. With Gnome I can suspend and hibernate from the System menu 
while KDE3 doesn't offer me any option to do so. This means there must be 
something compiled into these kernels, or some option ticked or not 
ticked, that makes KDE3 realize it's capable of suspending and 

I'll try the wireless module next. Could you tell me what exactly is 
different about a realtime kernel compared to a non-realtime kernel? Is 
it just the scheduling?
