Heres my existing structure:
I have 11.99Gb of unused space on my HD which I'd like to use. When I try and create an extended partition, fdisk tells me:
Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 155061 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 1 41613 20972826 7 HPFS/NTFS
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/hda2 41614 43694 1048824 82 Linux swap
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/hda3 * 43695 63536 10000368 83 Linux
Partition 3 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/hda4 63537 130110 33553296 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
Partition 4 does not end on cylinder boundary.
Now Linux supports 4 primary partitions, so how can I safely create the extended partition without disturbing anything stored elsewhere?
You must delete some partition and add an extended partition first
