Normally it just happens automatically when you do a manual partitioning
during the install process. First three are primary and usually when you
make the fourth or fifth partition the extended partitions start.  If
you want to establish prior to install then a live disk or thumb drive
is the only way I know of so as to have all your *blank* partitions show
up during install.


ps. sorry for the double post.  Forgot to change the subject.
