Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The whole point of our forum is for you to ask your questions here, not point us to another forum or such where you asked it. Call me lazy but post your question here and maybe someone will be able to help you out.
And also, don't double post. Its against our rules that you agreed to and use better titles in the future, yours doesn't tell us your problem and then when we click on to read, it still doesn't tell us what your problem is as your telling us to go to a whole new site to answer your question. Most will just ignore this and move on. Hence one reason you should just copy and paste from the other site to post here for a faster response.

Ahh.. the quirks of asking a question on multiple forums, you'll most likely get different types of replies. But I'm not really trying to be rude or inconsiderate. But what I don't want is to come to my forum of choice to help others but only get redirected to a whole other site.
Either post your original question or the question with replies with your other questions.. or I doubt anyone is going to help you out on this forum.
Simply for simplicity, actually that answers both of your questions
quatsch: It makes it amazingly easier to setup the boot loader for new kernel and such. It also removes the problem that people often have with "which distro's /boot do I have to stick the kernel in" if it ever gets that far. You also gain the ability to not have to boot into the distro that is going to be the 'main' distro with the boot loader, as you can mirror the boot info on each distro and simply run lilo to save the changes regardless of which distro you have booted into
Just so you can keep your 2 windoze partitions near each other. Since Linux could care less what kind of partition it's on, group things together to make it easier on your eyes when you have to view the partitions later.
Max of 4 primary, but actually on 3 since you'll need 1 to be the extended to contain the logicals.
