disk geometry

Thanks for all the replies to my last post

Running "parted" from RH7.2 rescue mode (with my adaptec integrated PERC,
in case it matters), I get the following

"Warning: the operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/sda is
2212/255/63.  Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 8032.499M.  You should
check that this matches the BIOS geometery before using this program."  

Unfortunately these numbers do not appear to be available through my bios
and are not physically written on the drive either... Are there any
utilities out there to get this? (I presume I can't use any linux commands
since Linux is whats misinterpreting the size?)
