 I was ultra-careful. Disk partitioning time. I didn't know how to use this 
proggie called "fdisk", but that was normal. The command prompt said "m for 
help" so I did that. I did a little poking around. Then I said shit, this was 
cool. It recognized a HUGE number of other partition types. Operating systems 
I had never heard of in my life. It put the DOS/Windows fdisk to shame. And 
it showed you your WHOLE partition table! All the bits and bytes in it. And 
you could change the values however you wanted.
