1. To use parted with the promise controller, you need a kernel with builtin 
HPT-Support (Do you use the parted bootdisk? I don't know if the 
HighPoint-driver is included). If you don't have a kernel that supports the 
Promise chip, you can connect your harddisc to one of the two onboard 
VIA82xxx-channels for partitioning.

2. If you use the Promise-chip, your disc should be /dev/hde (hda - hdd are 
reserved for the onboard VIA82xxx ide controller)
