A number of people have made comments to this effect, and that the
windows install will hose your linux partition, too.  There is an
important difference:

  The windows installer offers to hose your linux partition and then
  does so when you click OK.  It sounds like the current FC2 installer
  offers to set things up so they both work, and then proceeds to hose
  your windows partition.  That's not cool at all.

Properly informing the user about what's going to happen makes a big
difference.
