Disk Partitioning Question
I am running Fedora 8 on a scsi drive and I want to create 4 primary partitions on my server:
I am using the GUI interface on Disk Druid to do this. I can create the three partitions with no problem, however when I get to swap, the interface automatically declates the last partition as an extended partition, even though I select the box "Force to be primary partition"
I understand the basic concept of primary and extended partitions, so it is my understanding that one could have a maximum of 4 primary paritions and then have the last primary partition contain a number of logical partitions.
Is it possible to just create 4 primary partitions without any extended/logical partitions?
