hard drive capacity puzzle

I fell heir to a Samsung HDD...it says on the tin that it is a 2o gig job..but even after fdisking it to 100% and formatting,it still only shows 2 gigs as available. Is this fixable,or is it square window time?

oops meant to say the jumper is at "master"

There are several threads that have reported the same issue of only 2Gb showing after Windows 95-98-Me F-disking. Have you used the search function to seek them out and read them? They are very informative and could contain the fix for you.
