I could not find info on this problem so I'm reporting it to you.

I am attempting to use parted to resize a FAT16 and an ext2 partition on a 10GB IDE drive to make room for a Windows install. I have 3 primary partitions as reported by fdisk. Parted reports only 1 partition.

Note: I am running Hitachi Dynamic Drive Overlay V9.83 (Knoll Ontrack Inc.) software which loads at boot from the MBR and provides drive geometry translation.

Shell output of relevant information:

address@hidden:~$ parted --version

address@hidden:~$ which parted
address@hidden:~$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/hda
