problems with initialising LVM


Just bought two new 300 GB disks and wants to make a LVM. The new disks
are on /dev/hdb and /dev/hdc - hda and hdd works as usual.

gate:~# dmesg | grep hdc
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0x08b8-0x08bf, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, h
hdc: Maxtor 7L300R0, ATA DISK drive
hdc: max request size: 1024KiB
hdc: 586114704 sectors (300090 MB) w/16384KiB Cache, CHS=364
hdc: cache flushes supported
hdc: unknown partition table
hdc: hdc1

gate:~# pvcreate /dev/hdc
Device /dev/hdc not found.

gate:~# pvcreate /dev/hdb
Physical volume "/dev/hdb" successfully created

The disks are identical. Furthermore I can actually do:
gate:~# fdisk /dev/hdc
and partition the disk.

Any help appreciated.
