I had a simular problem to this. When you used Fdisk to create your original partition did you use all the avaliable capacity of the drive.
if so this isnt what you do as linux will not recognize windows FAT partitons as free space.
when creating your partions, create the four you desire and leave the rest of the space unpartioned.
it should do the trick!
(basically you should not be able to format your 1300mb partition and it will not be assigned a drive letter)
