Disk Partitions ( Primary , Extended and Logical partitions)

To a beginner its always a puzzle to deal with disk partitions.
Most of the guys end up giving total control to Default partition provided in Installation process and don't involve in custom partitioning.

I found most of guys asking below Questions

1) Difference between primary and extended partitions.
2) How many primary partitions can be created on a disk?
3) How many partitions can I create?

More of such questions will be addressed in this article.

If you want to use your harddisk the first thing you do is to partition it.

All OS installation processes involve this task.Each OS offers you with two major choices
either you want to go with default partitioning or specify a custom one .

Most of the time you don't want to bother about what kind of partitioning is used so you leave it default.
But if you are a system administrator and very serious about your profession you may give lot of details to partitioning.
