[vox-tech] Primary vs. Extended Partitions



If you need to create a new partition on a Windows 2000 machine to add 
Linux in order to dual boot, does it make any difference whether you 
make a new primary partition or a new extended partition?  What are the 
relative advantages and disadvantages between using an extended vs. a 
primary partition for Linux?

Thank you.

Bob
