Can I still create more logical partitions? - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Any advice is appreciated. with parted you can resize an extended partition! so delete partition3 and resize your extended partition to include the former part3. then you can add logical partitions to the extended one, Johannes...

    That's good advice. The only problem is, I'm running Redhat 6.2.
    parted doesn't seem to be installed. Installing it from gnu.org site
    requires other things. I'll see if I can install anyway. Thanks.
