Re: unable to align partition

So, I purchased a progeny debian linux install disk and tried to install it 
upon a "refornatted" (deleted all other partitions) 
harddisk which contains windows alone on the primary partition.
The GUI installer failed, which led me to use parted from the command line. 
Parted immediately reports an error regarding incorrect partition table 
informatrion generated by 
another boot manager (in this case Partition Magic). I had the option to ignore 
this so I did.

I then tried to use the print command, I received an "unable to align partition 
proper;ly..." and then the following output:

minor   start   end             type    fs      flags
1       23.563  6024.375                primary FAT     boot,lba

What can one do to fix this? 

kindest regards,
