I am new to Linux. I am running fedora core 6. I have a 200 gig hard drive in my PC but it only seems to be seeing about 50. What happened to the other 150 gig?

Do you know the make / model number of the drive. In the console window post the output of the following command:
dmesg | grep hda (The | is the pipe command i.e. shift \ on most computers)

Remember that linux is case sensitive.

The output is reporting the drive is 33GB. This could be due to a physical jumper on the drive that is used to fake the BIOS into thinking the drive is 32GB. However, linux should use the information reported by the drive and not what the BIOS thinks.
