Read a bit of what is on fedora.redhat.com.   And as another poster
pointed out learn a bit about the release methodology.

If that's what you thought then why did you choose Fedora?   It might
not be the right choice for you.   Nobody owes you anything.   If you
want something more stable please pay RedHat for one of their
supported products.

It really doesn't matter.   Is it the end of the world when there is a problem?
No.   We deal with it and move on.

sfdisk -d | sfdisk -H255 

Where 255 is the number of heads for your disk.   Usually 255 but
some people report 240 as the right number.     See, no big deal.
Obviously this will be dealt with so it's not a problem in the future.
It appears it's only a problem for people who ignored a warning
about LBA during their install process.   It doesn't seem to affect
too many people.

You really need to look yourself in the mirror.
