Does FreeBSD know to look there for the hibernation file, or is that a
BIOS thing? Also - do I use a Dell tool to create the hibernation file?
it's a bios thing. i never done this with dells, but i guess if you don't
find a dell-specific tool, you can use the ibm-one . however, some
googling  pointed me to pHdisk.exe from dell, maybe that's what you need.
I don't have Windows on my laptop - just FreeBSD, so if there is a way
to do this without loading windows on it, I'd be much happier. Although
I don't mind having a fat16 or fat32 partition around for this purpose..
no windows is no problem. the ibm tool comes as a dos boot disk.
