I got an error message that asked me to send you an email when I tried to use the parted bootdisk. If you need more information please let me know.

The error message I got from parted:
Assertion(walk->geom.length > 63 * 5) at disk.c:1008 in function _disk_check_sanity()failed

The output of fdisk:
address@hidden /root]# fdisk /dev/hda

The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 4982.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
  (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)

Command (m for help): p
