Nothing there to fix.  All it said was that the partition table format is
msdos and that there are two partitions.  "parted /dev/hda print" will show
what the partition table says in detail, while "fdisk -l /dev/hda" will
show how it was interpreted.  Note that my understanding of this is fairly
basic and I haven't had to manually edit any partition tables.
