"This angered a lot of people, but I simply cannot recommend a distribution to my readers in good conscience if the installer is completely broken. Thankfully, Fedora 12 was recently released and it’s fixed this problem, and then some!

"Looking back, I’ve tried everything to install Fedora 11 on my test machine. Different file systems, options, partitioning schemes, redownloading, reburning, you name it, I tried it all and I found that it simply doesn’t work. (Keep in mind that this is coming from someone that’s been installing Linux since 2002, I’m definitely no slouch). Fedora 12, as it turns out, installs without a hitch. It was painfully easy to install, and the installation worked on the very same box that Fedora 11 failed on previously with no configuration changes whatsoever. Fedora 12’s installer works, and it works well."
