Angry Trouble setting up Red Hat Desktop 3 on Oracle VM VirtualBox


Hey guys I am new to linux and have no problem installing Fedora and Ubuntu on my virtualbox.
I downloaded the binary discs for rhel-3 and when I start it, I hit enter to install or upgrade, then
I get error message :
Kernel Panic : Fatal Exception

i have disc 1 ISO as IDE Primary Master. VT-x/AMD-v is enabled.

Any one that can help thanks in advance.

Is that a typo? RHEL 3 is ten years old. Perhaps posting a link to the download site.

I am a college student taking Linux and that's what I need to download. I am aware it is no longer supported.

My only guess is that the Red Hat software is just too old to deal with current hardware. Which releases of Ubuntu and Fedora did you use?
You might take a look at the VBox or Red Hat forums. I've never used Red Hat so can't help.
I'm also curious as to why you would need to use an outdated system in a Linux class when a current system is freely available. CentOS is Red Hat without the trademarks and support.

from here
https://access.redhat.com/support/po...pdates/errata/
The very old RHEL3 ( 3.9 would be the last version )
is on extended ONLY support but not for long - it becomes Unsupported this coming January
it went "end of production" back in 2010
That is when CentOS 3.9 died , redhat still has security updates ??? maybe ???

The very old RHEL3 docs ( near the bottom of the page)
https://access.redhat.com/site/docum...erprise_Linux/

with RHEL3 being SO old i do not even think Mozilla was used ( mozilla went to firefox)
it might have AOL's netscape navigator

--- looking at the CentOS 3.9 vault
gimp-1.2.3-20.3.el3.i386.rpm
man that is old


well you HAD to BUY the required support contract (A 1 year contract for the next 7 months before it officially dies )
rhel is NOT free

contact red hat tech support
https://www.redhat.com/contact/sales.html
https://www.redhat.com/wapps/sso/log.../activate.html


but it "should" install in a VM ( the even OLDER RH9 will )
but you need to set the VM for hardware that is from 2002
as in a Pentium 4 CPU and an OLD ide drive
as for graphics
there are NO ati or nvidia drivers for this
