comment Why does 64-bit Windows need a separate “Program Files (x86)” folder?
@Wernfried: Sorry, but I cannot make sense of your comment. Do you disagree with my answer and claim that most installers offer you to choose a custom installation folder (I say precisely this in the last paragraph) or do you disagree with my claim that they do (90% is most in my book)?

If something deleted all fonts, which font is used to display those strange symbols?

comment How to upgrade from Fedora 1 (Yarrow) to a newer version with anaconda?
Well, as I said in my answer, I didn't actually think this would work. Could you share why you can't install an operating system the "normal" way (i.e., booting from a CD or a flash drive)? If I knew what the problem is, I might be able to suggest a solution.

comment How to upgrade from Fedora 1 (Yarrow) to a newer version with anaconda?
Starting anaconda is not the issue (sudo anaconda should be sufficient). anaconda needs a live image that it would normally find on the DVD. While it might be possible to instruct anaconda to get the image elsewhere or simply chroot into a mounted ISO, I'm not sure how to achieve this. This might be a good moment to explain what exactly are the limitations you are facing.

comment Change file allocation unit size without format
@DavidMurdoch: I based my answer on an eHow article, but GParted doesn't even let you choose the cluster size when creating a partition.

On my system, @rici's shortcuts seem to achieve what you're asking for. What happens on yours?
