Question about partitions

I wanted to start helping the project along, but the first
step (installation) has already got me wondering:

Can HURD boot up from an extended partition?  I have a small ext3 boot
partition at the beginning of the drive where GRUB lives.  Can I put the
microkernel in HURD's own non-primary partition, or do I have to make a
primary partition for HURD too?  I would like to keep HURD completely in
its own environment, using the filesystem it was meant to use, without
putting any part of it in the ext3 partition.

of the risks he takes.
