hda1-4 are pri partitions, hda5 should be your first
extended one, maybe that points you in the right
Are these 3 pri partition already taken by other os's?
Though linux needs as little as a swap and a root its
always better to use more partitions like
/boot(small) swap / /home /usr /var
so when a partition is filling up it doesn't have to take
your system with it and when upgrading you can
exlude your /home from formatting etc etc
