Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Another question (I ask, because I have here 10 notebooks with different graphicchips and all are working fine with both kinds of suspend):
Do you use a custom kernel?
Do you use suspend or suspend2 (patch from tuxonice)?
In Kernel 188.8.131.52 and higher (may be also before, I didn't realize it earlier) suspend-to-RAM and suspend-to-disk are included in the kernel sources. There is no patch needed to have a working suspend.
I am running a 23.9 kernel based on Pat's generic-smp config for slackware 12. The only thing I have changed is to have ext3 support built in and specifiying athlon/opteron. For all the other options that changed from 21 to 23 I used the default values.
As far as I experienced there are no problems with ATI's driver. Both kinds of suspend are working here without any problems. I use a script with these lines (I call it as user in group wheel with sudo and option NOPASSWD):
echo -n disk > /sys/power/state # change disk to mem for suspend-to-RAM
