/home is limited to mb when a 80 GB hard drive is partioned as /home


I have recently installed FC6 and I thought I partitioned /home to use 80 GB. apparently this is not the case as Disk usage analyzer shows /home as having 104MB and my user at 103 MB.
Any ideas in how to fix this?? I do have G-parted installed.the Logical Volume Manager shows Partition 1 as being Unintialized.
fdisk -l results are:
[root@localhost ~]# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 14 9729 78043770 8e Linux LVM

Disk /dev/hdb: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders

hi what do you get if you type

mount

?
because lvm like raid does not get mounted by hd device name
but instead/dev/md0 or /dev/lvm

im only asking since it looks like
/dev/hdb1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
is about 100MB

I think when I ran the disk druid I forgot to remove all linux partitions before doing the install
At least I had this problem after 2 days instead of a year down the road, so the back up won't be that big
Just as a side note, I found two web sites that were VERY informative as far as LVM.
they are:
http://www.unix-tutorials.com/go.php?id=333 (this one shows the LVM tools GUI)
and
http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/index.html (this one explains the concepts and useage of the LVM... also explains what files are needed and how to run commands)
Thanks for the help.
