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.
http://lwn.net/Articles/86835/

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.
