I run FC5 X86_64 on my Compaq V2000 (Turion / ATI) notebook.  Since
kernel 2.6.17 resume no longer works, but it does work again on the stock kernel, so I hope it will also work again on the next
fedora kernel.  To confirm if this is the issue, you can install the
2.6.15 kernel that came on the FC5 CD/DVD, to see if that was the case.

For the record, Ubuntu did not work well at all on this hardware - I
could not make the ATI drivers or suspend work.  In the end I spent less
time getting FC4 configured properly.  (I moved to FC5 after FC4 went
into legacy.)

I hope this helps.  If not, be more specific about the ACPI error
messages you receive.
