GPT Problems

My friend has a 6TB raid tower connected to his server. We are running ubuntu server 8.04.1. The device comes up as /dev/sda.  When we try to open /dev/sda in cfdisk it says " Warning!!  Unsupported GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected. Use GNU Parted." .  So I decided to fire up parted. (also this guide is what I was trying to follow: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/fdisk-unable-to-create-partition-greater-2tb.html )  But when I open the device in parted, i get big problems.  Here is an output of what I get: http://paste.ubuntu.com/27604/  .  I get this "stack smashing detected" error no matter which command I try to put in (that case it was print but I get the same thing when i try to mklabel gpt).

I'm wondering if it is a problem with parted, or a problem with my kernel not supporting gpt.  (Although I think it does, I'm not 100% sure and didn't want to recompile his kernel)

Thanks in advance for any help! :)
