Arrow cfdisk wont detect my partitions

First I wanna say hi to everyone.

Now to my actual problem. I'm trying to dual boot windows2k3 and linux slackware but when I try using cfdisk or fdisk it does'nt detect my windows partition.

2. It detects my hdd as a 380G well it should be 80G

Is this during install or afterwards? What command are you doing when using cfdisk? Just plain ol cfdisk or are you specifying the drive? Do you already have existing partitions for Linux or your Windows drive broken up into several partitions?

More details please or were as clueless as you are.
