Parent article: Making Fedora Core 2 and Windows play well together
Lots of people install Windows.... like after it screws up and needs to be
reinstalled... or after a virus or worm, etc. The need to reinstall isn't
as bad with W2K and XP.
Again, I installed on about a dozen systems before I ran into this the
first time. It certainly doesn't happen every time... or at least that
hasn't been my experience. Perhaps it is because I've installed mostly on
pre-partitioned systems that previously ran Linux... but I'm not sure.
As reported over and over, it isn't unique to Fedora Core 2 and it is
really an issue with the kernel. I'm sure the kernel developers
(including several employees at Red Hat) are working on it.
The vast majority of people installing FC2 have downloaded it... and it
isn't their first Linux. Once it starts coming out in books and more
beginners start locking themselves out of Windows, it might be a bigger
to post comments)
