fdisk doesn't recognize free space on 300GB Disk
Sorry for cross-posting but this is probably where I should post in the first place.
System: Dell 400SC.
Disk: Seagate 300GB ATA (ST3300831A), using onboard IDE.
I just installed the new disk and allocated 100GB NTFS in Windows XP Pro,
Computer Management shows this in XP:

Boot into Ubuntu with Live CD 5.04, I want to create a Linux partition for the rest 200GB free space, however, fdisk sees the disk is fully used:
======== screen log ========

p primary partition (1-4)
Partition number (1-4): 2
No free sectors available
======== end of screen log ========
Is this a kown issue or do I miss anything?
I want to do a 'dd' backup of the other disk to the new partition.
Don't have Linux installed on this system and don't plan to.
If this is a kown issue, do you know any _live_ CD may have a working fdisk?
I burned a Knoppix CD with the lastest version, but the box doesn't recognize it's a bootable CD, guess I need to reburn with another CDR.
Thanks in advance.
