I would like to install 2.1 as guest os on Redhat 5.0? is there any possibility?
Redhat support two types of virtualization guests, as below.but it also says; it also support third party OS. so can i install rh2.1 as well? instead third party OS?
Types of virtualization:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides support for two types of virtualized guests, para-virtualized and fully virtualized.
Para-virtualized guests offer the highest performance and do not require special processor capabilities. Para-virtualization is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (Update 5) and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 guests.
Full virtualization is available for a wider range of guests, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4 and 5, and also for third party operating system guests. Full virtualization requires Intel VT or AMD-V processors.
HOST OS: redhat 5.0
Guest OS: RH2.1 & RH3.0
If anyone know, please let me know, your help will be more appropriated.

I am having trouble installing RH 2.1, I believe this "bug" will help Redhat engineer to make Rh 5.0 more stable. I've snapshot of that bug, can any one please tell me how to attach images with this reply?
Below are the steps I followed to install Rh2.1.
1) gave hostname
2) selected Full virtualization
3) assigned installation media (ISO disk1 image)
3) assigned storage space by selecting "Simple file" option.
