I used WinXP disk management. Right click unformatted space...create new
Only option is Primary...Logical and Extended are greyed out.

It shows the partitions occupied by Linux on the extended
partition....but no option to make another Logical partition.

so what should I do....how to use the unformatted space
without making primary partitions ?
