I was just planning to reply with something along the same line.
I think Karl thought it would be some kind of
recovery/clone/backup/snapshot, you name it, partition.
Avraham simply mentioned "One is for XP (NTFS); one is for data (NTFS)
and one is for Ubuntu 9.04."
"data" is just that... "data". :-/
