parted limitations (bug? Disk too big?)

Bought a 200GB disk.  Partitioned it with fdisk, partitions in cylinders, not 

Ran parted, which griped "This ext2 filesystem has a rather strange layout. 
Parted can't resize this (yet)."

The fs is ext3.

What do I do to get more information to you about why parted had the problem, 
so I can get information how to correct it?


PLEASE generate man pages as you primary interface with us poor dumb losers.  

Info sucks big time (can't search the whole "page" as I can with a man page).

RTFM (not RTFI) is "the way".  Coercing 'info' is as uncool as coercing emacs 
(I do vi).
