Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

It verx! It verx!
I booted up slack 13.37 on another virtualbox host. Then I recompiled kernel 3.0.
Then I moved the guest vm back to the offending machine with the i3/i5/i7. Yes it failed on all three "i" cpus.
And lo and behold it worked!!
The problem is that the included kernel does not work with this combination (mentioned in my first post).
Hi, could you please tell me how you solved this problem? I got the same problem on my Acer 5742ZG laptop.
The processor is an Intel Pentium P6100.
This is my hardware:

I boot the .iso (32 bit version, the host machine is debian squeeze 64bit) and then press Enter (to boot hugesmp.s) but then it fails during the loading. I tried huge.s too, just for curiosity, without different results.
Well, much later, the developers of virtualbox finally admitted that it was THEIR problem!
The kernel panics had nothing to do with the linux kernels (kernel.org) but were entirely virtualbox bugs. It seems that these problems have mostly been solved. It still shows up on some machines.
I believe the problems come from my CPU not supporting some Virtualization technologies like VT-x.
Infact, I've tried some other distributions... but they work very slow under virtualbox.
I've also tried Slackware not so much time ago, still the same problems. Probably it's my CPU's fault.
