I would like to be clarified on this thought. Is Linux Ubuntu Operating system possible for any partitions? If so is it more similar to windows wherein you could represent it through the drive letters such as the C or it is true that they are using numbers instead? Thank You!

hi, yes of course Linux is an OS like any other OS can have its own partitions , but there is no C and D in Linux , instead , there a different concept, which include somehow what you said, numbers!!

to explain more, this is the output of the partition i have in my Ubuntu :

$sudo fdisk -l

 Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          13      102400    7  HPFS/NTFS
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2              13       11409    91533312    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda3           12749       30402   141796352    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda4           11410       12748    10755487    5  Extended
/dev/sda5           11410       12673    10153048+  83  Linux
/dev/sda6           12674       12748      602406   82  Linux swap / Solaris
 
you can see that each partition is named /dev/sdai, where i stands for the number of the partition!!
