Unable to partition solid state drive.  Help!

Hi all,

I'm having trouble partitioning my solid state drive. SSD.

I have a OCZ Core Series OCZSSD2-1C64G
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227344

I'm running XP Pro, and using Norton PartitionMagic 8.0.  When I go into the program I am able to resize the drive and create a new partition.  I apply the changes and the system reboots.  Before Windows starts up I see that the drive is in fact being partitioned.  However when I go and look into my computer I see just one drive of the size of the entire disk.  Even when I start PatitionMagic it detects the drive and it doesn't detect the partition that was supposed to be created.

Any ideas on what might be happening?  My drive is 64GB with XP Pro installed.  I resize the windows partition to 32GB and create a Linux ext2 partition on the unallocated space.  I create this new partition as primary, I even tried another time making this partition as logical, but no luck.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
