You have partitioned a partition ! 

You should run fdisk on /dev/hdc rather than /dev/hdc1 and set the partition
type of hdc1 to 8e. Then LVM should recognise it. I am assuming here that hdc1
is the partition you want to use for LVM.

Be careful with fdisk - you can do a lot of damage if you don't know what you
are doing.
