I've just bought myself a nice new Hard Drive for my Linux machine and i've been doing some research on the Internet into fdisk before i jump in and partition it up.
According to some sites i've seen they say you can only have up to 4 primary partitions on a Drive. Is this correct. I was hoping to have more.
They were also talking about extended partitions. What are these and how do they differ to Primary Partitions.
Is there a limit on the Number of these I can create.
These are things I probably should know. Sorry if I'm asking really stupid questions.
Thanks in advance for your help
