Can't get 4.3 H.D. to show in windows.It shows as 2gig

After installing a W.D 4.3 HD running as P-master & a 1-gig, as P- slave. I partitioned ,(said yes to fat 32 ) formatted and installed win 98 on a clean drive. The system works fine , and I installed all of my other programs. I checked c-drive to see how space I had used and it reads c- drive as a 2-gig with 1-gig free & d-drive reads correctly as a 1-gig & all free. I went in the bios and it says 4.3 & I start the system it say's 4.3 until I get into win98. Any ideas. THANKS

Make sure you set the Harddrive correctly as LBA mode in your CMOS.

If you don't, windows and fdisk will go ahead and format your harddisk as
a large harddisk, but you'll run into problems later because windows doesn't
really know how big your harddisk is.
