you can generally have four primary partitions on a disk. This can
often not be enough partitions. So if you flag one of those partitions
as an extended partition, then you can put *more* partitions within
that one.

| Partition 1 | Partition 2 | Partition 3 | Partition 4        |
                                          | ext1 | ext2 | ext3 |
