Stuck on step number one

I have a disk where the ext2 partitions were created by a disk to disk
utility (I do not remember the name) . You can boot and run linux
without any problem. However "fdisk /dev/hda" puts fdisk in a loop
which continuously prints an error message.
cfdisk however has no problem with the disk.
I always preferred fdisk but now I use cfdisk exclusively . Even the fdisk
man page says to use cfdisk because fdisk is "buggy".
> It's just that I really like fdisk. It's done great things for me, whereas cfdisk has only annoyed. And how, you ask? It presumed to have a GUI. I know that's low, but first impressions tend to stick.
