    I'm trying to install both Fedora and Mandrake onto VMWare. But upon bootup, I'm getting this message "kernel panic - not syncing : attempted to kill the idle task!"
    ...then it just hangs.

    Anyone ever get this message? It happens with both Fedora and Mandrake on VMWare. I'm installing it with .iso images so I cant test it out on another pc at the moment.

    Thanks in advance! (y)
