I installed a new hard drive 40GB.
After install I used Partition magic to create 3 partitions.
Using Fdisk I see that I now only have 32015 Megabits total.
Where did 7985 Megs go.

A 40GB HD is really only 39GB but that still leaves 7GB unaccounted for. Are you sure you partitioned it using all available space?

I never thought of the space before and after,when creating a partition, I just never paid attention.
