Description of problem:
I tried installing under the latest beta under vmware using bootnet.img and I am
getting a kernel panic when booting the installer kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the latest vmware workstation 3.1
2. Create a boot floopy from bootnet.img
3. Boot on an AMD Duron processor in VMWare (host RH7.2)
Actual Results: Kernel Panic
Expected Results: It should have let me install the latest redhat beta.
I was running the first skipjack beta under vmware with a k6-2/500 and
everything was working fine. I upgraded my motherboard to an AMD Duron 1000Mhz
and I got the kernel panic on boot up of beta2. Thinking it was VMware I
updated to the latest 3.1 and started a new guest OS using beta2's
bootnet.img->floppy. Still received the kernel panic (posted below).
I tried a 7.2 bootnet.img just to make sure it was working, and it loaded fine.
I realize that this might just be a problem with VMware, thought I would post
anyway. I don't have any spare partitions to test w/o VMWare at the moment.
