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...

I ran into the partition table issues, and decided to restore from backups and wait until I had a better understanding of what was happening. Then I read the LWN article, which explained what I had been seeing much better than much of the misguided advice that I had seen elsewhere.

Today, I wrote down CHS values that fdisk reported under my current Linux setup. Then I booted up the Fedora Core 2 CDROM and used 'linux hda=15017,255,63' to install. Everything worked. No complaints from either FC2 or my previous Linux setup. So I'd like to confirm that this technique does indeed work.

Now I can get on with testing and (maybe) migration.
