Missing hard drive space

That would be this drive (after going WAY back in this discussion)?

Disk /dev/sdd: 320.0 GB, 320072933376 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x227f1d55

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdd1               1         392     3148708+   7  HPFS/NTFS

Only 3 GB seems to have ever been defined on that drive. I'd expect
to see other partitions listed if you've had it working in the past.
If not, you can bring up the Ubuntu approved disk partitioning
(f)utility and create a new partition.

It seems that pretty much right off you may have had something setup
wrong on the Windows configuration you had. So that space should be
safe to reallocate.

Erm, it had better be safe. It takes a painful lot of work to recover
an NTFS partition, especially if you have little knowledge of the old
partitioning structure. (That tee-shirt got ripped to shreds in the
process of earning it.)
