    Uh oh, disk problem?

    Disk utility tells me my hard drive is "misaligned by 512 bytes" and should be re-partitioned. Is this a serious problem? Everything seems to be working. Exactly what steps would I take in repartitioning to line up the partition?
    I'm using 12.04 and have a single 1 TB drive that is all one partition (other than boot and swap)
