2 hard drives, issues?

I have two hard drives. According to the BIOS (as well as the label on the HDs), the first (master) drive is ~4gigs and the second (slave) is ~13gigs. That's correct.

Now when I boot the Slackware CD, and use fdisk to check it, it says the slave drive is 2111MB. Why is it reporting wrong?

What happens if you make the 13G the master and the 4G the slave?
