And there wasn't any of this primary / extended / logical partitions
inside extended partitions, gobbledygook, either.  It was just
partitions inside the drive.

Speaking of Amigas, have you got Fedora to read any Amiga FFS hard
drives, or even Zip discs?  I've got a hankering to transfer some old
data onto Fedora, and I'd rather not have to try getting Samba working
with Miami over a serial port link.  Ugh, torture!

(Currently running FC4, but testing FC5, if that's important.)
