That explains why linux wants everything to look like scsi - its the
worst possible choice! :-).

I could have just fit all the partitions I wanted in if the Windows
installer would have let me make 3 physical partitions, but it just makes
one, then puts the rest in logical partitions, thus using up
two partition table slots with nothing in them. Oh well, I would have
gotten impatient before installing 7 operating systems anyway :-).

(When I tried to make the partitions with fdisk, Windows pukes
and refuses to install - so I had to let Windows do the partitioning).
