I am trying to partition and format a 1.7 Gig hard drive, but my partition only shows 47 meg and I can't get it to see the rest of the drive. PLEASE HELP.
Thanks, Rick

When you run fdisk and select option 4 what info does it show you on the screen?

I found the problem 2fold, 1. The previous drive must have been a 47 Meg, so it continued to see the new drives as 47.
2. I was never able to enter setup before, once I got in I changed the drive setting to auto, rebooted, and the system was finally able to detect the full size of the drive.
Thankyou to all that sent me different hints!!
