View Full Version : How to create an extended DOS partition with cfdisk?

I've got a 80GB HD and have made the first 8GB to a FAT32 primary partition for WinME. It followed by a 512MB Linux swap and then 10GB for Knoppix installation.

Now I'm trying to use cfdisk to create a FAT32 partion for WinME data. When I created a partition it's by default Linux type. I couldn't get it change to the type I want, maybe I picked the wrong type. My question is how to create a FAT32 partition on the remaining free space for WinME data.
1) Do I have to create a primary or a logical partition?
2) What partition type I have to choose?
3) Is the remaining free space (~60GB) too huge for one single FAT32 partition?
