if i remeber correctly, hibernation partitions will not work. instead you
have to use that ibm floppy to create a hibernation file. it will be
created on the first available FAT partition. so you might want to think
twice before converting the Win XP partition to NTFS. if you do that, you
will need to make an ordinary FAT partition and then create the hibernation
file therein.
