ok, I'm bashing my head against a wall here.

I've a 4400 with the Perc3/DC addapter on it.  I'm using a raid 5 array 
with 100GB usable, 50GB partitioned now.  I would like to create a 20GB 
partition on the logical drive, but ever time I try, I get the following 
error when formatting in ext2 

mkfs.ext2: No such device or address while trying to determine filesystem 

I added the partition using straight FDISK without a problem. any ideas?
