Yesterday i read a preview about Fedora core 2 on
They mention that there is a bug in Fedora Core 2 that causes the hard disk geometry as reported in the partition table to be altered during installation. This change may cause Windows boot failure. But this is not a Fedora bug but a kernel 2.6 bug which causes the same problems even in Suse 9.1 and Mandrake 10.
I use Slackware 9.1 and windows in the same machine and was planing to update to kernel 2.6 since at the moment am using 2.4.26. So my question is: am i exposed to the same danger? Does this cause the same problem in Slackware? Or does it happen only during an installation of a distro rather than when you update the kernel after the normal installation?
Sorry for my bad english
