A possibility is to install FC2 on another machine, boot the ASUS box
with an FC1 rescue CD, export the file system on which to install and
mount on the source box. Then use an rpm --aid --root installation. (rpm
now requires you to *first* install the rpmdb to the target, or --aid
will not work). Install a boot loader and see if it boots. Possibly not
:( .
