	Thanks to dj, Tom, Robert, Tony for your help.  Fdisk would let me make
a new primary partition, but would not let me make it an extended
partition (as long as my memory is correct and all I needed to do was
change the type to 0f).
	I was able to resize the partition with parted, and now have added some
logical partitions.
