Boot Partition is Extended Partition!!

I didn't even notice until I had already installed w2k3 and set it all up, but the boot partition (C:) is an EXT DOS partition!! It's NTFS, but I noticed something was strange when the system files where on a different partition. All of the system partitions are on the D: partition. I tried moving them to the boot partition and then setting the C: partition as active with fdisk, but it wouldn't boot, so I had to change it back. Why did it set the C: partition as an extended partition when I installed w2k3? How can I change it to the primary partition? I would really like to have the system files on the same partition as the boot files, but I can't do that until the partition is not extended. Thanks for you help.

powerquest's volume manager can do this type of thing for you as long as the dirve hasn't been set as a dynamic drive.

Yikes. Isn't changing the boot partition a little risky for a server though?

Yeah... I guess that was a dumb question :). I guess I was just hoping there was a way to change the partition from extended to primary without the use of third party software.
