Try parted. Make sure you make the extended partition go to the end of the disk and then fill up the space in between. Also, fdisk in Debian will allow you to go beyond 15 (I have 26 total on /dev/hda).Its really very irritating that they keep making disks bigger and bigger and software never seems to know what to do with them :-).
That's normal though, ATA/IDE disks aren't subject to the same limitations in Linux.
