I don't think either of these is relevant;
most people will have all Linux partitions ext3,
and parted (print) normally says the partition table is msdos.
I would try running grub interactively;
type "c" when the grub prompt appears,
and then "root = (hd0,0)" or "root = (hd1,0)",
and see what grub reports.
