TU TU TU! It took some Googling, but I found the PHDISK.EXE utility and was
able to create the suspend-to-disk file. I no longer receive the error
message on boot and after 50+ QSOs TR is not freezing up.

I vaguely recall that there is a utilty (maybe phdisk or something like
that) that came with phoenix bios that needs to be run to set up this file,
but I could be wrong.
