Yeah my 2 other drives that I created show up.  I was just about to create another one and the option is grayed out.

Just discovered that Windows XP only lets your create 4 Primary Partitions at a time.  I need to go back and delete one and re-create it as an extended partition.  Then I can create more extended partitions.  It's the small stuff.
