Why is is that you have to reinstall Windows?

One issue is solved by setting the disk
params to use LBA not AUTO in the BIOS.

Anyhow do some searching for the dual boot interactions
of Windows XP and FC2.

One rumor is that there is a bug in the way Windows set up the initial
partition map.  Then other tools correct that error and... things
break.  I am told that there is no data loss by this issue.

Summary:
	if dual boot
	and Windows XP with FC2
	search the archives and bugzilla.
