Removing the DELLUTILITY parbreastion
I was under the impression that my root filesystem had to be on a primary parbreastion, it's good to know it doesn't. I ended going with:
dev-sda1 DUdev-sda2 NTFSdev-sda3 Ext3dev-sda4 Extended dev-sda5 Swap dev-sda6 FAT32
As you guessed, I just wanted the FAT parbreastion as my go-between drive. A couple interesting things I noticed were that the Dell Ubreastility parbreastion is FAT32 (I unhid it from Windows with Grub) and can be called directly from grub with rootnoverify (hd0,0) chainloader +1. I was also surprised to see my drives listed as SDA, not HDA; this is on a D610 with the new Intel Sonoma chipset.

I'd also like to add that Fedora Core 3 runs great on the D610. Only the Intel 2200 didn't work out of the box, but the drivers from sourceforge work great. My next small task is setting up direct rendering for the ATI X300, but the generic drivers work fine.
