It did when Ajay lent OS/2 Warp to me to try out.  He swore it shouldn't
overwrite MBR without my permission, but it overwrote it when all I did
was just run their installer's fdisk-like program (I don't think I even
committed the changes I was twiddling with).  I forever complained to him
about that one, never went through with the installation, and went right
back to Windows and reset the active flag to Linux.

Not that I didn't appreciate your lending me OS/2, Ajay :)
