is it true that you can only have up to 4 partitions per fixed disk

No it's only that you can have up to 4 Primary partitions on one HDD. You can have up to 24 logical drives in an extended partition though I certainly wouldn't put that many in. :smokin:

Yes basically that's it though other os's like in a dual boot Win9x/XP or similar can have the 9x os on a primary and XP on a logical so long as the boot partition is the primary one. :smokin:
