Yes, I've had it installed in a primary partition (/boot) before. This is
necessary with the S2D partition, because the S2D function apparently
modifies the MBR. That's always worked fine.

You just mark that partition as "active" with fdisk.
My concern is that it might not work the same in the extended partition
or a logical one. It seemed plausible that a logical partition might not
be locatable by the BIOS boot loader, or that the extended partition could
not be marked active for some reason.

Hope so. You're the only respondent so far.
