Yeah...the first three partitions are primary partitions. Then the fourth partition(/dev/hda4) is the extended partition. When you create the extended partition in fdisk you create it to use the rest of the disk. Then everything after that(/dev/hda5, /dev/hda6, etc.) will be a logical partition that is housed within the extended partition. So /dev/hda4 can't really be assigned to a specific directory since its not a useable partition.
