Slackware Linux on a logical partition


Dear Sir,

I've installed Slackware-10.2(Linux-main) on a primary partition and Linux-Swap on a logical partition without any problem (Intel PC).

Can I install Slackware-10.2(Linux-main) on a logical partition as well.


Will it work / Is it possible.

Welcome to LQ!

Slackware will run on logical or primary partitions.

Code:
bruce@silas:~$ /sbin/fdisk -l

255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          64      514048+  82  Linux swap
/dev/sda2              65        1339    10241437+  83  Linux
