and now I want to destroy the partition and reclaim all of the
250GB. So i simply ran fdisk /dev/sdb and deleted the 2 Linux
partitions ( one 83 and one swap). I then created a new partition as
primary partition #1. fdisk appears to see the entire disk....I'm
able to start at cylinder 1 and end at 30401 which is 250GB, however
when i mount the partition it's shows as only 50G.....What the hell
is going on here???

Dumb question - did you format the new partition?
