HEY - what if you dont install grub on the MBR but install grub on the root partition for Fedora instead? Then install the GAG bootloader on the MBR and use GAG to choose your windows or Fedora.
This way Fedora and Grub never write to the MBR. Will that stop the partition table from being changed (in a way that affects windows)? or does the problem also happen if the fedora installer creates or changes a partition??? Whats not clear to me is when the partition table gets screwed up, is it by grub or the fedora partition program?
I have been using the GAG boot loader for a while now on many machines and it really makes life simple. Check it out at http://gag.sourceforge.net/
