Sorry, I didn't realize GNU parted wipes out MBR. It looks like the latest version works, but is not included in Fedora 14. Well, at least we know your BIOS does not boot GPT.
Try running a rescue CD/DVD boot and run grub to re-install MBR bootstrap code. If the MBR partition table is still there, maybe it can make it visible. If not, recreate it using fdisk. Your partitions are still intact, so as long as you remember the exact partition boundaries, you should be able to resuscitate it. I think there is a tool to convert GPT to MBR, but you may need to search further.
Not sure about kickstart, but I haven't seen a fresh install with a clean disk giving you a choice of MBR or GPT, so there may not be an option.
As long as the MBR is not wiped out and you have a hybrid MBR+GPT, my original suggestion should work: Have a <2TB boot/root partition (64GB is plenty for me) and have the rest 3TB be a data partition. 3TB-64GB still leaves about 2.9375TB, which is close to 3TB anyway.[COLOR="Silver"]

Actually, now that I think about it, you can always use LVM. Have <2TB partitions combined into one big file system.
