Partitioning with CFdisk

Hello. I'm in the process of redoing my server. (I had slack 8 on the old system) At the moment i'm putting slack 10 on the system. The problem i'm haveing is with the partioning. I probably just dont understand the basic rules of it or something. This is how i want my system layed out:

/boot - 500
/swap - 1000
/ - 40000
/usr/local/ - 30000
/var/www/ - 40000
/tmp/ - 8500

The drive is 120Gb total.

When i'm creating the partitions in cfdisk, it lets me create the 4 drives, and then tells me the rest of the space is unusable. I've chosen the partitions to all be primary. I'm sure that is the problem, but i'm not sure how i would set it up otherwise. Any help would be appriciated!

Never mind i figured it out. I read the tutorial in the tutorials section. I simply made the first 3 of my drives Primary and the last 3 extended. Thanks!
