You can create as many partitions as you please, but I see no need to
do this. As far as I know, the primary and extended partition
restrictions are DOS/Intel limitations.
Your existing partitions are fine: I'd leave them as is, except change
/usr and /usr/local around, i.e.
/root 128.25 MB
/swap 128.25 MB
/var 128.25 MB
/opt 128.25 MB
/usr/local 128.25 MB
/usr 1.13 GB
/home 2.26 GB
You can change these assignments by simply editing the /etc/fstab file.
For a base Debian install, you won't _need_ the /opt or /usr/local
partitions, but you might install some KDE or StarOffice applns, and
then these partitions might be a convenient place to put them.
