[CentOS] CentOS 6 (G)parted re-aligning existing partitions?

I used Hiren Boot CD (Some tool on it) to create 8 partitions for
Windows XP and CentOS 6.
Now, CentOS6 Disk Utility reports for first partition:
"Warning: The partition is misaligned by 512 bytes. This may result in
very poor performances. Repartitioning is suggested.",
and similar warnings almost all other partitions.
Since I already have both Windows (NTFS) and CentOS 6 installed, I was
wondering is there any easy way of re-alligning them, maybe via parted?
Can someone write short to-the-point howto for repartitioning ext4
partitions (/boot especially)? NTFS partitions I can ghost without a
problem and resize them when I returnin it on the HDD. It would be nice
to experiment, but I am out of time.
I did fdisk -l /dev/sda > file and I can do dd to image file, but how
I read somewhere that it is good to leave 1MB free before first
partition, so it can be aligned?
