Hi everyone,
I got the following when starting parted:
[root /home]# parted

Using /dev/hda
Warning: Unable to align partition properly.  This probably means that
partitioning tool generated an incorrect partition table, because it didn't
the correct BIOS geometry.  It is safe to ignore,but ignoring may cause
(fixable) problems with some boot loaders.

just in case this helps:

Can someone guide me on this?

It is funy, but I don't understand for why someone still use fdisk if parted exists :)
