120GB disk that shows up as 100GB

Hi,
Ive just bought a new120GB Western digital JB ATA100 8mb cache hard disk.

I'm running Win98 and after installing the disk and running Partition
Manager it shows the undefined disk as 106273.7Mb ie just over 100GB. I know
that the actual capacity advertised by manufacturers id a little bit over
what it is but should there be nearly 20Gb missing?

I'd appreciate any comments as to why this might be.

Thanks
Macca

check the BIOS on your PC supports greater than 100Gb
