Description of problem:
When installing FC2 test1 on a disk that contains an Windows XP (NTFS)
DiskDruid complians about the geometry of the disk. When DD has
created new partitions and the installition has finnished Windows
won't boot because of the erronious partition geometry (no, its not a
grub problem). FC boots fine however.
If the disk is inserted into another machine running windows it can be
accessed but partition magic refuses to handle the drive because of
the unsupported geometry.
Even when installing FC on a separate drive DD ruins the windows
installatio although that drive was never touched during the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a Windows drive / partition somwhere in your machine
2. Run anaconda and disk druid
Actual Results: WinXP wont boot.
Expected Results: WinXP should boot.
