It won't wipe away the table.  It will just let you edit the existing
table interactively, through a series of questions like:

	- Do you want to edit partition 1?
	- Do you want to edit partition 2?
	- Do you want to edit partition 3?
	- Do you want to edit partition 4?
	- Do you want to change the active partition?
	- Do you want to save your changes to the disk?
