I recently bought a 120GB hard drive but it is only recognized by fdisk as 48GB. I imagine I need to flash my bios but could it be a problem with Win98?

BIOS DATE: 11/28/2001
BIOS SignOn: 11/28/2001-8361-686B-6A6LNL19C-00
BIOS Type: Award Modular BIOS v6.00 PG
Chipset: VIA VT8361 KLE-133

Not sure about the Super I/O or the OEM Signon, I'm not sure if that is important or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is a W98 bug (fdisk) look at Microsoft for the fix!

"Windows 98 and Fdisk" is a hint for searching
