I followed the handbook to create my partitions, and when it came down to the home partition, i wanted to use the rest of the disk, which fdisk said was only 488meg, i have a 40gig drive so i know something is wrong here.

what am i doing wrong here? 
i went ahead with the install anyway just to get it going, im hoping i can either expand the parts later with parted or something or hopefully the extra space is just sitting there some where unpartitioned and i just cant see it.  im sure the drive is good it was working in another system, non-linux.
 
TIA
