Question 250gb 16mb Cache Maxtor Hd

Hello . I built a computer for someone and put a 250GB Maxtor HD. In bios it shows as a 250GB hd but it's only being recognized as 123GB in windows. What do I need to do? I have it on a PC chips Mobo, with a AMD athlon XP 2600 prcessor. How can I get to use all 250 GB's.?

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought XP Pro was always only sold with at least SP1.
