i don't know if this has been fixed in fc3, but my first installation of
fc2 exposed this bug - you *must* create the fc2 partition *before* you
start the installation ... there is an option during the fc2 install
process to let it automatically partition the disk for you - you must
choose the manual option, and then tell it to install to the partition
you had previously created ...

otherwise, an automatic partition can wipe your windows location from
the master boot record (that's what happened to me, and not knowing at
the time how easy it was to fix, i ended up wiping everything on my
windows partition) ...
