An extended partition is just a container for logical partitions.
If your existing logical partition does not use all the extended partition,
you can create and format a second logical partition in the unused space.
Otherwise you will need to shrink your existing logical partition first -
google for PartitionMagic for example.
See http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-HOWTO/Large-Disk-HOWTO.html for
information about disk partitions.

Subject: extended / logical partition
I have an extended partition that I'd like to reformat for linux, but
don't want to loose the logical partition it contains. With fdisk I
need to delete it first, but then I loose the logical partition.
Am I missing something?
It it possible to format the extended without loosing the logical partition?
