Of course, it is my data partition (maps,....). But for now, I also
use it for the kernel, didn't try yet to boot directly with kernel on
ext3 partitions (same as rootfs).
 And I have already too much partitions, do not want another tiny one
just for kernel....

I will look at this...
(Well here I used GUI appli from ubuntu (gparted ?) to partition. Can
I use this appli to change this ?)

1st partition is primary FAT
then extended partition with 5 (!) ext3 logical partitions.
and last one is 1GB primary ext3
So as for now I use FAT one for data (and kernels) and 3 ext3 ones for
qtopia, 2008.8, and fso...

(I know it is a lot but hey.... so much to try... 2007.2, qtopia,
2008.8, FSO, debian, stable/unstable... and I sometimes want to be
able to try an updated one before deleting one that works...).
