Sounds like you created a FAT16 partition instead of a FAT32 partition. Unless you have a tool to repartition (Partition Magic, etc...) then your going to have to blow it away and fdisk it for large drive access aupport. It should have prompted you for this when you first started fdisk, unless your using a version of fdisk that does not support FAT32. Once you fdisk for FAT32, format it and reinstall. Hope this helps.
