Say Y here if you would like to use hard disks under Linux which
were partitioned using Windows 2000's/XP's or Vista's Logical Disk
Manager. They are also known as "Dynamic Disks".

Note this driver only supports Dynamic Disks with a protective MBR
label, i.e. DOS partition table. It does not support GPT labelled
Dynamic Disks yet as can be created with Vista.

Windows 2000 introduced the concept of Dynamic Disks to get around
the limitations of the PC's partitioning scheme. The Logical Disk
Manager allows the user to repartition a disk and create spanned,
mirrored, striped or RAID volumes, all without the need for

Normal partitions are now called Basic Disks under Windows 2000, XP,
and Vista.

If unsure, say N.
