Thanks Marlin. I guess I'll go back to FC1 then :)

I read all the responses to this point, so I am aware of what you have
seen already <G>...

FC2 will not run in the Microsoft Virtual PC because of the coding that
is used in the Linux kernel to run. I've taken this issue up with Red
Hat engineers and Microsoft and the answer is the typical "blame the
other guy." stuff. There is a technical term for the coding, so if you
want to search Bugzilla, you will find the details there (don't have the
number handy). Red Hat or the FC2 team was supposed to add something to
the Release Notes so people are aware of this issue.

You will either have to use an old PC sitting around unused, or use
VMWare if you are interested in testing FC2. FC1, though, runs nicely in
the Microsoft Virtual PC product.

Hi everyone,

I just installed Fedora Core 2 on a Microsoft Virtual PC VM. I'm quite
new to Linux and my earlier installation attempts were not very
successful, so I decided that this would be a good way to do the
installation while I have access to the internet and other resources (I
only have one machine).

Anyway, after the installation, I don't seem to be able to run any
Whenever I issue any command I get an error "Segmentation Fault". Even X
won't run. Has anyone encountered a problem like this?
