hd not reporting correctly on install

| I decided to go ahead and reinstall everything and use potato this time. 
| This was prompted since I was told potato was fairly stable, plus there was
| a disk manager (western digitals dynamic disk overlay) running that my
| original install did not remove and it was preventing lilo from booting.
| Anyway before I did this, my hd was being reported as 777mb in the boot up
| and in fdisk/cfdisk etc.  Now that I've apparently removed the disk manager,
| the hd is reported as 777mb in boot up but cfdisk and fdisk are only
| reporting 328mb.  I looked up the drive at theref.aquascape.com, and they
| report that the drive should be 777mb.
| How do I fix this?  I just love venturing into uncharted waters.

There's been a recent thread regarding this on the debian users list.
You may have to prompt fdisk/cfdisk by giving them the precise
parameters as command-line options.
