At this time, I have the main partition table filled, with one of those
being an extended partition, and on that extended partition I am up to nine
logical partitions (bringing me to sda13). I think the partition table limit
is sixteen, but as the devices stop at sda15 [?], I'd have to reconfigure
the kernel to test that.

Duh, I was thinking of NFS mounts from different machines, not different
systems on one machine. Forget what I said about sharing, and refer to the
articles by Bill Leach (the one I am answering) and the one by Ray Ingles.
