can't get yellow dog linux to stop shutting down after booting process begins so i installed red hat linux 9 in virtual pc on my osx box.

i'm trying to install ximian desktop and i get this

[user@localhost x]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost x]# wget -q -O h**p://go.ximian.com |sh
sh: line 1: wget:: command not found
sh: line 2: Usage:: command not found
sh: line 3: unexpected E0F while looking for matching ``'
sh: line 4: syntax error: unexpected end of file
[root@localhost x]#
