repairing a ntfs partition with fdisk ?

He everybody,

after resizing a ntfs partion (or better: after a failed attempt due to
the bad mood of partition magic), windows2000 is left unbootable. And
the partition magic rescue disks aren't able to do anything else than
telling me that the partion is in a critical state (as if I wouldn't

Anyway, after booting linux fdisk shows:

root@ringwraith:/ >fdisk -l /dev/hda1

Disk /dev/hda1: 240 heads, 63 sectors, 1354 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 15120 * 512 bytes

     Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1p1   ?       505    112914 849806598+  72  Unknown
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary:
     phys=(361, 105, 45) should be (361, 239, 63)
/dev/hda1p2   ?     92238    140400 364099898   72  Unknown
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary:
     phys=(109, 116, 32) should be (109, 239, 63)
/dev/hda1p3   ?     11097     11097         0   45  Unknown
Partition 3 does not end on cylinder boundary:
     phys=(358, 110, 52) should be (358, 239, 63)
/dev/hda1p4        186982    186985     25947    0  Empty
Partition 4 does not end on cylinder boundary:
     phys=(0, 0, 0) should be (0, 239, 63)

Partition table entries are not in disk order

Is there any way of repairing the ntfs partition using fdisk or another
tool under linux ??

Fortunatly I can still mount the partition to rescue the important
files, but it is still bad. One would think that the rescue disks should
be able to deal with that kind of problem, after all, that is what they
are there for.

Cheers and thanks for listening (and hopefully helping)
