partition table + windows = ???


Before I installed Windows XP, I did not have this in my partition table about the cylinder boundary. Are there any dangers to this?


Code:
/dev/hda1               1       22367    11272936+   5  Extended
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/hda2           22368       99873    39063024   83  Linux
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/hda3   *      121954      155056    16683502+   7  HPFS/NTFS
Partition 3 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/hda5   *           1       20806    10486161   83  Linux
/dev/hda6           20807       22367      786712+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
Note that I am viewing this table from Linux.

No dangers, minimal loss of usable space
