This makes things clear. I forgot to tell ubuntu which is my swap
parition during the installation, so it's clear that it did not work
w/o kernel paramenters.

After suspend and resume, my firewire harddrive does not work anymore
(no reaction in dmesg when turning it on and of). People told me this
is because the fw drivers doesn't support suspending. However I
couln't remove the modules and load them again. So my question here:
Is there a chance to get firewire working with suspend to disk?

I would also like to know how the ubuntu kernels are built. Is there a
good howto documentation? I know make-kpkg, but nothing about how the
initrd image is built, which patches are used, etc
