I tried to install this several times, but no joy. First of all, it fails to do a graphical install, there is a message about the framebuffer, but it flashes by too quickly to be sure. Second, after the text-mode install completes, it hangs forever trying to boot the kernel. I tried both linux debian and linux 2.6 kernel options when creating the VM. Running parallels RC2. I tried using less than 512mb as well. It hangs at the "Configure iputils-arping" before ever getting to the kernel boot stage. Has anyone done this successfully?
