I don't hink so b/c extended partitions are by default after hda4. You
can have 4 primaries and many extended. The extended are part of a
logical partition. That is why during a boot we get hda1, hda2 < hda5 >,
or something like that. WE have primary hda1, logical hda2, which has
hda5 as a prt of it. All extended partitions are after 4.
