Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary

I just installed lucid 64bit server and looks like /boot partition
overlaps. I built few other
lucid 64bit server. They all show the same overlap.

# fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 146.0 GB, 145999527936 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 17750 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0008911b

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1          31      242688   83  Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/sda2              31       17750   142332928   8e  Linux LVM

How do I fix it? Also is there a way to install lucid and make sure it
does not overlap the cylinders?
