Total Newbie partition question
I've read the HOWTO's and some other info, but it seems that this topic
is sort of glossed over, and I have never really understood exactly what
to do, so I wonder if someone could give me the total newbie answer to
What to I do with extended and logical partitions when I have three
physical paritions on my drive already?
In other words, I have hda1,hda2,hda3, and I would like to add more than
hda4. Assuming I am using fdisk, how to I properly add the logical
partitions? Do I make the remaining drive space an extended partition
and then add logical paritions there? Am I mixing up the terms?
I most likely missed the sentence or two that describes this, so if this
information is in some obvious place, forgive me (and please point me at
it...). I sheepishly tried adding an extended partition, but I wasn't
exactly sure where to go, so I backed out and didn't write the disk.
