Morning all :)

Im tearing my hair out here (I dont have much left so could do with keeping
some :P )

I have been given a 1tb drive that was formerly part of an LVM system.  I
would like to flatten it and format it as ext4.....its driving me nuts!
using fdisk -l it only shows as

Disk /dev/sdb: 33 MB, 33348608 bytes
14 heads, 55 sectors/track, 84 cylinders, total 65134 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xdd6f3073
   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1            2048       65133       31543   83  Linux

Can anyone point me in the right direction for removing lvm and getting its
size back please?
