I'm running Slackware 10.2 on a logical drive and it runs great. My swap partition is also on my logical drive.

Linux doesn't care if it's on a primary partition or in a logical one, it doesn't even care if it's on the first primary/logical partition, it cares less if it's even on the first hard drive
