Re: Can't get full capacity of my disk!

[ cfdisk reports a 6+ gig drive as 2 gigs ]

Two things to check
1) press <alt><f2> to get a terminal and type "dmesg" to see all the
kernel bootup messages.  Scroll up using <shift><pgup> and look for where
the kernel detects hdc to verify it works correct.

2) try fdisk from that terminal ("fdisk /dev/hdc" should work).  It's not
as pretty, but seems to work where cfdisk falls short.
