Ah, but you're using all the sectors in your extended partition.  You
need to either [carefully] grow hda2, or add another primary extended
partition (say, hda3) which covers the rest of the drive, into which
you can add more logical partitions.

You have 14593 cylinders.  You have used 4807 of them.  You should
have 9786 left.

I have drives with 14 partitions on them.  I've had up to 25 before.
