Certainly this document is useful to anyone who has already been hurt by the bug, or who has already downloaded and burned Fedora 2 ISOs. I would like to see a bit more detail, though, on exactly at what point the disk geometry information becomes corrupted, to assess whether an upgrade via apt or yum would be affected.
But does the Fedora team think that asking everyone who wants a dual-boot setup to follow this procedure is a satisfactory solution? It's complex enough to be error-prone, and greatly increases the complexity of installing Fedora dual-boot.
If I were in charge, I would declare Fedora Core 2 a "paper bag release" because of this bug, and put out 2.01 (or whatever you want to call it) in a hurry. It should be possible to do this in a way that only the first CD needs replacement.
