Fedora Core So, there it is, the highly anticipated second release of Fedora Core. Again, I wanted to wait for a few days for things to calm down,and again, I couldn't resist updating my production system within two days after the release. Well, I'm just a Linux junkie, i guess...

RE: dual-boot bug

I have not yet installed Fedora 2, but had recently the same problem with Debian Sid (with 2.6.5). Like you, couldn't boot XP, couldn't reinstall XP, tried FIXMBR, used fdisk & cfdisk to format my HD and create partitions and still failed to reinstall XP. The next thing I did was a base Debian Sid install, execute the command dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1 to wipe the mbr which finally cured the mess.
