It sounds like only part of your disk was partitioned during Windows installation.
http://support.microsoft.com has an article on this - in the search box look for article 325170, and also the webcast link in that article. (I used the text version rather than view the webcast.)

Does this article help? I can remember 20 Mb disks - I'm really getting old!
