[linux-lvm] pvcreate error



i am trying to create a pv on an entire disk /dev/hdb with the following
command:
pvcreate -ff -y /dev/hdb

it returns the following error:
pvcreate --device "/dev/hdb" has a partition table

fdisk, sfdisk and all other methods prove there is not a partition table
on /dev/hdb

using lvm 1.0.1 with mandrake8.2 kernel 2.4.18-6

what is causing pvcreate to think i have a partition table on /dev/hdb?
