comment several hard drives and partitions
Thanks! I intended to ask if there can be a primary/logical partition that are partially on both hard drives? And if there can be a logical partition on a hard drive and another logical partition on another hard, and the two logical partitions belong to the same extended partition? I guess the answers to both questions are no?

@Ignacio: could you point me to some websites with information about the limitation of "four primary partitions" does and does not exist for different partition table formats? I'd like to know more. Thanks!

comment sizes of RAM, of virtual memory and of swap for 32-bit OS
Thanks! Why are these numbers "an excess of 512MB" or "1.5x your physical"? Which of the two is to follow?

comment sizes of RAM, of virtual memory and of swap for 32-bit OS
Thanks again! I happened to find at tldp.org/HOWTO/Partition/requirements.html :"the maximum size of a swap partition is architecture-dependent. For i386, it is "officially" 2Gb. It is 128Gb on alpha, 1Gb on sparc, and 3Tb on sparc64. An opteron on the 2.6 kernel can write to a 16 Tb swap partition. " Does it mean the size of the swap is limited by the bit-depths of both CPU and OS?

Thanks, Ignacio! What is the difference between the bit depth of the CPU and the bit depth of the OS? Do they have to agree with each other? Can a 32-bit OS be installed with a 64-bit CPU?

comment Where to find driver to wireless adapter?
Thanks! But I think Ethernet NIC and wireless NIC are different, so your link is not for wireless NIC. Moreover, For more information, my adapter chip is bcm 4309 802 11a/b/g, and the detail about the adapter is PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&.... Maybe I am stupid, but I can't find it on the Broadcom website. What kind of information is enough for finding its driver, and where can I find its driver?
