partitioning hard drive

My problem is that I have a Dell Pentium Pro 200 computer purchased in 1996. The hard drive that I ordered with the system was a 3.2 gig. I had a friend install a Maxtor 40 gig 7200 to make available additional storage. He installed the hard drive alright but the system reads it a an 8 gig hd. He said that he tried to partition it with partition magic 6, but, wasn't able to get it to recognize the 40 gig drive. Consequently, I downloaded your GPL from tucows to have a go at it. Am I on an unsolvable mission unless I upgrade CPU and motherboard, or is there a way. Incidentally, if your software can be used, what should I use to install it. It has been some time since I unloaded tar files. Your assistance is appreciated!
