You sure can. I carved it up that way planning on installing a different
distro of Linux on each partition. It's actually only 6 - one of those is
the extended partition containing three logical partitions. However, my
need for miscellaneous data storage came before I had the chance to do the
"Great Installfest" so those partitions are now being used for random
Oh yeah - the drive is a 12.2 gig drive, with each partition being 2 gig
except the last partition which was sligtly larger. /dev/hda is a 2.6 gig
drive - that's my "main" drive. I.e. that's where Debian itself is
installed, where the swap partition lives (/dev/hda2), and is what I boot
However, I am now regretting carving the drive up like that as some
partitions are rapidly running out of room while others are close to being
empty. As soon as I can afford a CD burner I'm going to archive everything
off and either turn it back into one large partition or *maybe* 2 or 3
larger partitions. I don't know yet.
