Yes and yes but the development version requires more testing for it to be enabled in the final FC5 release. Hop in and participate if you have time

I'm not sure if i'll have time for that. But hypothetically speaking, how does one go about installing the development release? I'm not seeing isos for download. Do people install FC4, and then run yum from specific Development sources?

See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Drafts/TestersGuide


Also, testing suspend to disk shouldn't be very dangerous for my harddrive, i guess. The worst thing that could happen is a crash during re-boot, which one should be able to fix by running a rescue CD, correct?

It shouldnt cause any hardware problems. Use a dedicated system. subscribe to the fedora-test list, read the archives and post queries there. Alternatively there is a third party website providing software suspend enabled kernels which was recently referred in the fedora-desktop list. This might work for you. You are on your own with this one though
