If you type fdisk /dev/hdc1 and then press P, does it see the drive size
correctly or does it complain to you about accessing the device?
fdisk /dev/hdc1


unable to open /dev/hdc1

If however I enter fdisk /dev/hda1 then it gives me a whole paragraph about
the hard drive having more than 1024 cylinders, the partition table contains
no entries, and there is a message stating

What does just fdisk -l show?  Is it really at hdc ?

It shows /dev/hda and /dev/hdb (the cdrom).
