Damaged partition after installation

Hi all,
I've just installed Mandrake 10.0 on my PC.
The system has two disks, on disk 1 I just left the original Windows Xp partition, on disk 2 (bigger and faster) I have freed some 11gb from XP with Partition Magic.

I've installed Mandrake 10.0 in expert mode, I got it to install in the free space, making two partitions: one of 10gb for '/' and a 1gb swap partition.

Installation went OK.

Now I can access with LILO both the XP installation and the Mandrake one and everything works fine.

The main problem I have is that if I launch Partition Magic from XP, PM shwos for disk 2 with a single partition and says it is a damaged one.

Any suggestion?

i think in fdisk there is a command to see what's wrong in a partition, then you can try fdisk to repair it.
