dont get this primary, extended, logical partion thing
ok guys thx for all the help and i do realise that i am flooding the forum, but i guess im a linux noob trying to install gentoo. i cant quite figure out how to make logical drives. from playing around with fdisk it seems that i can have 4 primary/extended drives, and the rest have to be logical drives. however what i dont get is how they divide the hd. from what i can tell, the primary can take up as much room as it needs, and so can the extended. however the logical drives have to fit inside the extended partions. is this correct?
