Huh?  In that case, why not 'd'elete that 1st 4Gb partition and make a new 
one 'n' that uses all the drive?  And the 't' to set it to type 83, then 
write that table to it with a 'w', exit fdisk, and mke2fs /dev/sdX1, where X 
is the same letter used for fdisk.  Voila! 8Gb unless it truly is a broken 
bit of tom-foolery.
