is your 2.6.18 system loaded in flash or via filo?

It would be nice if suspend2 could dump the image into an elfimage on
a partition specially set up for, instead of hidden in swap. Then you
could even load it from filo ... but on fast machines, linux is going
to go faster than most things; could we load 2.6.18 or whatever in
flash instead of filo and have it load the magic suspend file?

The problem there is that I thought that the suspend kernel and the
boot kernel had to be the same kernel; is that true or not?
