I had the same problem a while ago running a Potato system with a homemade
2.2.9 kernel and a 9 Gb drive. Windows could see the entire disk, but
cfdisk insisted that it was only 8 Gb. A later version of cfdisk enabled me
to partition the remainder of the disk, but mkswap and mke2fs wouldn't
initialize it for me...
Anyhow, I finally got it working by adding the line
to the global (top) section of/etc/lilo.conf. Now the only problem is that
I've got a 534 Mb partition that I can't decide where to mount, so it's just
sitting there, still unused... (Any suggestions?)
