Parted is telling me something. What does it mean?

I got parted to actually start up, but I'm getting some messages that
concern me and solicit any help available.  I'm running Red Hat Linux
7.1 on a SCSI system.  On giving the command:

# LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./parted

I get the message:  bus error (core dumped)


# parted /dev/sda

I'm told

Warning:  The operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/sda is
2233/225/63.  Therefore cylinder 1024 ends at 8032.499M.  You should
check that this matches the BIOS geometry before using this program.

Ok. let's see what happens further.

(parted) print

Warining:  Unable to align partition properly.  This probably means that
another partitioning tool generated an incorrect partition table,
because it didn't have the correct BIOS geometry.

Ignore Cancel ?   i

I'm practicing using parted on a scsi machine at home in order to
hopefully do some surgery on a similar machi ne at work.  I want to grow
my / partition into a /data partition.  There's no data in the /data
partition so I'm not worried about losing anything there.
What do I do now?
