Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.

I have installed Fedora Core 3 on Virtual PC and the installation proceeded smoothly. Its after booting that I face issues . I get message Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes.
this happens wether I boot in text mode or graphical or in 1 , 2, 4 modes also.

My machine is an Intel 3.2 HT running on 915 GV/GL chipset with 2 GB RAM. I have other Suse linux and PCQlinux(based on FC3) running successfully over Virtual PC on this machine.
Why is thsi happening ? Help
The kernel is 2.6.9-1.667 on i686.

Your answer is here my friend,


That site is great for what works and what doesn't in Virtual PC. The good news is that Fedora does work, you just have to jump through a few hoops to get it working.

Linus not booting in VPC

Thanks for the link. the link says to go the rescue mode chroot /mnt/sysimage and then download the latest kernel using wget. the problem is how to configure the proxy server in rescue mode. Alternatively they suggest configuring SAMBA and downloading it formm a windows share. Again how do I configure itfrom rescue mode I wonder . Help?
