suspend-to-disk under Win2k and ntfs

I have a Dell Inspiron 3500, 300MHz clock, 256 Mb RAM, 10 Gb HDD (with 5.5 Gb free) running Win2K from an ntfs volume. I cannot seem to preserve the suspend-to-disk file no matter how I initialize the drive and install Win2k; every time I format or convert to ntfs, my s2d file disappears.

How can I preserve the s2d file (it's a .bin file) and still use ntfs on a single contiguous volume? (partitioning the drive seems to work but it leaves me with s2d on c: drive and everything else on d: drive, which may give me application and user problems later.)

Is there any way to install the s2d file without reformatting the hard drive and starting over?
