Post redhat 7.3 installer not showing actual disk size ...

Hi There,
I have two hard disks in my PC and I have installed windows 2000 in Primary master hard disk. I like to install Redhat 7.3 in the secondary slave disk. I formatted the second disk through windows using FAT format. The linux 7.3 intaller is showing two disks and is showing full size of the first disk but showing only 2GB on the second disk (actual size should be 6 GB). Can anone tell me whet am I missing...?

Thank you.

Boot from the RH cd, choose rescue mode, then run
fdisk /dev/hdb
and look if it shows everything correctly ('p' options to list current partitions). If it does, partition the disk using fdisk, save the changes and boot to RH installer again.
