I just installed an older 540MB conner HD in a small 486
machine that I intended to give to a couple of kids who
don't have a computer.
When I ran fdisk to setup the partition, I got the message
that the total disk size was 12MB not 540MB. There are
no other partitions on this drive and it will only
format to 12MB. Any ideas???
