why doesnt linux see partitions in 1st hard drive?

i got 3 sata hd on my new build. sda (1st hd) has 10 partitons-xp,vista (ntfs),data (ntfs/fat32),swap,ext3.

when I installed debian it sez no partitions on sda so i put it on sdb.

now debian file manager shows partitions on sda but gparted sez no partitions there.

fdisk shows all partitions there.

anyone know why conflict?

If any of your NTFS partitions were closed down uncleanly, then gparted will ignore it.
