I have a t21 with 256m of ram.  Hibernation takes about 30 seconds. 
Well, actually I use "readysafe".  It's the only way to actually
hibernate from a program, I believe.

hda1 is a trimmed down w2k partition that came with the machine.
hda2 is my linux /boot
hda3 is my extended partition
hda4 is FreeBSD

Except that actual space for the extended partition is at the end of the
disk, with the FreeBSD parition before it.

The extended partiton is carved up into 5gb chunks where my / file
system and other "playground" partitons are.
