error report, per the error's request

I'm getting an error when I try to run "check" in parted.  I'm
running Xandros 2.0 on this machine, if that matters.  If I do a
print, I get:

(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/disc:
0.000-76345.500 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031  19069.343  primary   fat32       boot, lba
2      19069.343  40266.351  extended              lba

8      35134.374  40266.351  logical   ext3

If I do check on any of those partitions, I get:

# Error: The FATs aren't big enough to describe all clusters!  Each
FAT is 9530 sectors.  There are 1219839 clusters, which would require
each FAT to be 9531 sectors.  This is REALLY weird.  You might want
to write us an email: address@hidden

I suspect that part of the problem is that I used Partition Magic 8.0
to resize partitions.  The next time I went to use Partition Magic,
it reported that there was an error and asked if I wanted to fix it. 
So, I said, "yes".  Every since then, I can no longer use partition
magic.  And, I'm stuck with the partition layout that I have.  It
doesn't seem to have affected anything other than my ability to use
partition magic or parted.

Please reply to my address@hidden address.  This yahoo address
doesn't get checked very often.
