Hi Mike, and the whole Group,

I appear to have solved the problem, but I don't know exactly what the=
 problem was. I fdisked the drive again, rebooted the machine, and went=
 into the BIOS. There is an option to "reset to failsafe defaults", so I=
 did that. Then I rebooted again, and went into the BIOS setup and changed=
 the settings back to what they should be for this machine. When I let the=
 machine reboot again, the drive was correctly recognized and I am=
 formatting it to the full size as I type this. Obviously, there was some=
 setting in the BIOS that was incorrect or was causing the HD size=
 detection to report incorrect information to the system.

Thanks for your help Mike.
