Partitions or disk space?  If you use gpt, it can create 128 partitions 
by default and more if you really want to.

$ cat /etc/lfs-release

$ uname -a
Linux lfs6 3.4.1-LFS-SVN-20120617 #8 SMP PREEMPT Sat Apr 27 00:38:43 CDT 
2013 i686 GNU/Linux

$ cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 15
model           : 4
model name      : Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz

Obviously not a development system any more, but that's what I am using now.
