when installing using the live cd 2008.0 i686 iso i.
the first boot option would just freeze on a black screen.
when selecting gentoo --nofb i get the following:
BUG: Int 6: CR2 00000000
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot virtual pc 2007 with iso mounted
2. options, select the second boot option.
3. see error.
I wonder what kind of framebuffer/console devices VirtualPC presents to the OS.

i now in the past, to get other distros, i've had to do the following cause of video issues:
ubunu kernel command add: "vga=791 noreplace-paravirt"
OpenSUSE kernel command add: "noreplace-paravirt i8042.noloop clock=pit"
Fedora10 kernel command add: "noreplace-paravirt vga=0×32D clocksource=pit psmouse.proto=imps nohz=off"
those are from http://pirate-king.com/episode/3509
as i know not what i am doing. just messing around with the stuff.
We don't support booting the media under virtualized environments, especially one that's apparently as screwed up as VirtualPC. If there's an *easy* fix we can apply, we will. However, if other distros have problems too, there's not much we can do.
