After trying to install FC2 for the first time (I
haven't gone past partitioning by Druid),
boot record on Windows partition became wrong - heads
and sectors/track were set to 0. After I set them to
correct values, Windows could be booted again, and the
partition could be mounted from Linux.
The second time I actually had installed FC2, I could
not boot Windows again - and this time boot record was
ok. The problem was solved by switching disk access
from Auto to LBA in BIOS. However, in FC2 parted
complains that partitions are not lined up properly...
It does not complain in RH9.
