Fedora Core (2 I think) had a problem where the installer wrote partition
data wrong. I didn't have the problem on my particular BIOS at the time,
and I definitely didn't have it when I installed Hoary a month or so ago.
There will be plenty of people on hand who can fix any problems that do
happen, but while I heard of heaps of problems with the broken Fedora
installer I've heard of none with Ubuntu.
