  8           were partitioned under an operating system running on a different
  9           architecture than your Linux system.

 11           Note that the answer to this question won't directly affect the
 12           kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
 13           the questions about foreign partitioning schemes.

127         help
128           FreeBSD uses its own hard disk partition scheme on your PC. It
129           requires only one entry in the primary partition table of your disk
130           and manages it similarly to DOS extended partitions, putting in its
131           first sector a new partition table in BSD disklabel format. Saying Y
132           here allows you to read these disklabels and further mount FreeBSD
133           partitions from within Linux if you have also said Y to "UFS

148         help
149           Like most systems, Solaris x86 uses its own hard disk partition
150           table format, incompatible with all others. Saying Y here allows you
151           to read these partition tables and further mount Solaris x86

156         bool "Unixware slices support"
157         depends on PARTITION_ADVANCED && MSDOS_PARTITION
158         ---help---
159           Like some systems, UnixWare uses its own slice table inside a
160           partition (VTOC - Virtual Table of Contents). Its format is
161           incompatible with all other OSes. Saying Y here allows you to read
162           VTOC and further mount UnixWare partitions read-only from within
163           Linux if you have also said Y to "UFS file system support" or
164           "System V and Coherent file system support", above.
165 
166           This is mainly used to carry data from a UnixWare box to your
167           Linux box via a removable medium like magneto-optical, ZIP or
168           removable IDE drives. Note, however, that a good portable way to
169           transport files and directories between unixes (and even other
170           operating systems) is given by the tar program ("man tar" or
171           preferably "info tar").
172 
173           If you don't know what all this is about, say N.

175 config LDM_PARTITION
176         bool "Windows Logical Disk Manager (Dynamic Disk) support"
177         depends on PARTITION_ADVANCED
178         ---help---
179           Say Y here if you would like to use hard disks under Linux which
180           were partitioned using Windows 2000's/XP's or Vista's Logical Disk
181           Manager.  They are also known as "Dynamic Disks".
182 
183           Note this driver only supports Dynamic Disks with a protective MBR
184           label, i.e. DOS partition table.  It does not support GPT labelled
185           Dynamic Disks yet as can be created with Vista.
186 
187           Windows 2000 introduced the concept of Dynamic Disks to get around
188           the limitations of the PC's partitioning scheme.  The Logical Disk
189           Manager allows the user to repartition a disk and create spanned,
190           mirrored, striped or RAID volumes, all without the need for
191           rebooting.
192 
193           Normal partitions are now called Basic Disks under Windows 2000, XP,
194           and Vista.

204           Say Y here if you would like LDM to log verbosely.  This could be
205           helpful if the driver doesn't work as expected and you'd like to
