The reason I brought this up is my assumption that Fedora's Grub2
installation might pattern itself after *buntu's, which destroys OS/2 LVM
information situated in the sector preceding the EBR for /dev/XdX5 even when
all partitioning has taken place prior to system installation, and thus
nothing should be written regarding such base EBR sector in the MBR table.
IOW, the *buntu process advances the first sector of the extended partition
by one from the standard location.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
