It's not Windows specific

The problem is actully not specific to Windows. The driver geometry should not be changed, whether I have Windows or QNX or FreeBSD. The installer has no business messing with the drive geometry. It's a bug. The only part specific to Windows is that it won't boot.
I hope Fedora will release a bootable floppy image that would revert the geometry to LBA. I suspect they are working on it already. It's easier to write and debug a script once that to explain even a simple thing to every user. But they should debug it really well. Besides, the script should restore the cylinder count to the correct value (not just for pedants).
