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...

Those of you worried about the bug you can install without being bit by it.

It requires you to write down the CHF in rescue mode
then reboot and install with this:
Example: linux hda=14593,255,63

So not only if you already installed you can fix it with sfdisk but now you can avoid it entirely with an install option.

This is a nasty bug that is a pain in the ass but I wish this stuff was in the release notes.
