I have no recent experience with Dell, but do have a Compaq V2000
(Turion processor, ATI graphics, running X86_64 FC5).  Software suspend
using acpitool from extras worked well till the fedora kernel got to
2.6.17.*, and not since.
I have confirmed that it works with the newest stock kernel, 2.6.17.11,
so hopefully it may work again with the next Fedora kernel update.
FC5 originally shipped with kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5, which could
suspend on my hardware.  This may not be relevant to your hardware at
all, but try to suspend before your first update, to eliminate
regression in the kernel as an issue.  (This will not work if you use a
respin CD/DVD).
You probably now this, but it may work better if you do a chvt before
and after suspending, and you may need specific kernel options.
