WinXP and FC2 on two hard drives.


To avoid the mbr problem, I normally(1 HD) install Fedora like this:
linux hda=C,H,S (Cylinders,Heads,Sectors)

If you need to install it on a 2nd HD, will I be safe by just changing hda with the second one ?
(It's not my system, so I have to be sure...)

Thanks.
