A manual partitioner, such as fdisk, can now only create two more
partitions, sda3 and 4. No more. It is possible to extend sda2, then add
inside sda8, 9, 10, etc. But that is usually a manual and dangerous
operation. Some partitioners handle that situation automatically, perhaps
dfsee.

Had you read my Fri, 02 Oct 2009 14:22:04 -0400 post in this thread you
should know that it does.

Partitioners that don't handle that situation automatically are unnecessarily
crude. The distinction between primary and extended for unused space beyond
the end of allocated logicals is an unnecessary and confusing construct.
