Only mounted partitions will be showed in df. If you have two 2 GB partition then you have to format the other one (using mkfs utility for example) and mount it. But if you have a one 4 GB partition but df says that it's 2 GB then there is a problem :-) Which one?

Is the rest of the drive part of another partition? Or did you partition the drive correctly?

The partition youare showing us here in the first logical drive in the extended partition. Maybe the rest is a primary partition...

you can do a fdisk -l to get a list of all the partitions on your disk.

df only shows the mounted partitions.

Ah, you must have two drives... this one is a primary master hd and the one you listed earlier was a partition on a primary slave hd.
