Freddy Kruger is supposed to be scary so surely he should be `sudo mkfs.vfat -l -F 12 /dev/sd?`. Doesn't just delete but also gives you nightmares even after death...
I've had scarier things done to my hard drive by Fedora installer back in Fedora 16. :)
I have been using Fedora since the beginning and never had anything scary done to the hdd. Not when using the defaults and not when setting up experimental file systems in strange layouts.
As usual, it works for some, right? Anyway, I had misaligned clusters, and that was only discovered later when I was installing something else. So I ended up backing up the entire home partition and repartitioning the whole drive. FWIW, Fedora worked fine and openSUSE also had the same problem around the same period.
I think "works for most" would be more accurate but there will always be exceptions whether it be specific hardware, odd configurations, chance usage of different code paths, odd mixtures with other distros, phase of the moon, etc. I will say that there was a known alignment issue in F16 Beta but that was fixed. So long as you got it working and are still fighting the good fight though i don't care ;-)
