You have just experianced this bug:
The good news is that you can fix it by running this command in linux
(either boot straight to linux if that works, or use the rescue cd):
sfdisk -d /dev/hda | sfdisk --no-reread --force -H255 /dev/hda
IMHO this is why FC2 should be recalled or atleast re-released with a
fix or refusal to install when this bug hits; Because what a nice
introduction to linux it is "We blow your shit up!"
I bet most people fall in the silent majority category, who never find
their way to the mailing lists and just think "A so thats how 'well'
linux works, it wrecked my computer and caused me to loose all my data..
Use linux? Naaahhhhh"
