I'm running 7.2 release on an s10e. The acpi is a problem - but David Naylor on the acpi@ list gave me a patch which eliminated most of the errors. Let me know if you're interested and I'll ping it over (or try the acpi list to see if there's an update).
Haven't tried suspend-resume, but I am running the broadcom wireless successfully with ndis.
