Suspend to Disk (Possible with LVM?)

I'm running Fedora Core 3 Test 2. I've enabled the pmdisk in the kernel and added
pmdisk=/dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol01(swap file location)
to my grub.conf file.
Everything seems to go well when I suspend to disk. When I power up the kernel cannot find either of my LVM partitions, then panics and stops. If I remove the pmdisk= line, my system boots just fine. Of course I have to use:
mkswap /dev/mapper/Volume00-LogVol01 and swapon -a
to get my swap file back and operational.
I get the same results using "software suspend" switched on in the kernel and
in my grub.conf.

Can suspend to disk be used with an LVM swap partition?

I don't use LVM but have tried software suspend withour luck.

2) in my opinion grub is not suited for any kind of wake on calls it is really good at finding a live file on a live computer. Try searching for any info on LILO altho I rudely suggest they act the same as boot loaders and not as hard drive re-awakeners.
