Ok, then should the Fuerte wiki page and/or ROS install docs reflect this
then?  It is a little misleading.  I was initially under the impression
that there's a working version of Fuerte for Precise:

"ROS Fuerte Turtle is primarily targeted at the Ubuntu Lucid, Oneiric, and
Precise releases, though it can also be installed on various Linux systems
like Red Hat, Debian, and Gentoo."
