And why is that? I haven't noticed that happening..the only thing that I know of that dislikes anything but primary partitions is Windows, but if you've got some real, not-just-rumors-knowledge about what you stated, I'm willing to hear it (and the sources where you got the information).
With installation problems you should be very specific about how you did things (and what you did). NTFS is a Windows filesystem and though there's a read-write module for it, with Linux installations you should stick to the "native" filesystems such as ext3. Anyway, here are a few things you should tell:
- how did you install it; did you boot from the live/desktop cd (or dvd), go trough the Installation which you start by clicking the desktop icon etc. or did you insert the disc while in Windows and select to install it there (if I'm right, Ubuntu offers to do such an odd installation as well)
- if you installed it the traditional way, did you do manual partitioning or let the installer partition the disk for you (did it resize your existing partition?)
- did you check the installation disc for problems prior to using it? If you boot from it, you can run a CD check to see if it's ok or not..
