Yes you have right, but what i made, wasn't, that you wrote. I made simply one logical partition under Linux with cfdisk. And i changed the ID of this partition to 0xBF. Default is Linux :-) This was the same thing, that i made some times by changing the ID to FAT32, and creating a FAT32 filesystem on it.
