Yes and No. It's limited to 4 _PRIMARY_ partitions. So just put the additional
partition(s) you need in some logical ones (see below).

Create an additional extended partition. Then the logical ones. Ready to go..
(you may - if there is - also use the empty space on the extended partition on
which "os2 root drive" resides). Got it?
