Fdisk?  You using MS-DOS?  I suspect you mean the BIOS set up shows an 8 Gig
drive when you install the 20 Gig. If you are using MS-DOS, I seem to recall
there was a limit to the drive size that it would recognize.   I would
recommend updating the BIOS.  My Tecra 8000 (400 MHz version) works fine
with the 20 Gig it has in it.  Of course I am running Windows 2000 Pro, and
on another 20 Gig drive Suse 9..2 Linux.
