fdisk vs gparted? (Modified by Kim Cascone)

below is a fdisk report from my son's G3 iMac DV which describes his 4.7G Linux part as a 'NewWorld bootblock'...yet 'gparted' describes the same part correctly as a 'ext3' fs -- which is what I formatted it as in the Ubuntu install...

***does anyone else get similar discrepancies between fdisk and gparted?

cage@cage:~$ sudo fdisk -l
