Did you reboot after you repartitioned the IDE drive? You can usually get away without the reboot on SCSI drives but with IDE it is required to reread the partition table.

I don't think that's necessary. fdisk calls the ioctl necessary to re-read the partition table after it's done. In fact it's more likely to work as expected on IDE disks than with SCSI (try playing with some fibre channel devices!). However, you can run:

"sfdisk -R /dev/hdd"

which will cause the kernel to reload the partition table. It certainly can't hurt :-).
