It may be a result of using the Linux FDISK utility.
It can create partitions that DOS does not understand.
Another thought would be that you created a partition for windows and
one or more partitions for Linux.
In that case this may be normal since windows is reporting the size of
the partition and not the drive.
The space reserved for Linux would not be reported that way.
To see the complete drive, run the DOS FDISK and have it display the
partition information for the drive.
I hope that this helps. 8-).
