My expertise in partions is not the greatest, but....

In a disk, you can create four primary partions.
You will want to create logical partitions for anything else.
I myself create my system core on primary (/, swap and boot) and then
the rest on logical.


Actually, I think if using logical partitions, the partition housing
these partitions is refered to as an extended partition, meaning you can
have 3 primary, and one extended

And my knowledge there falls down ;)
