Exclamation Fedora 6 on Microsoft Virtual PC 2007


Hi! Thanks for opening my question thread =D

Firstly, I am not all that skilled at Fedora ... I ran a FreeBSD Server for a few months but except for installation of programs and a few random commands/terminal skills thats all I know.

My computer is a Dual Core running Vista with Microsofts Virtual PC 2007 installed. My goal was to emulate a few different Linux's just because...

Anyway, after figuring out that installing Fedora on Virtual PC was very unstable, I finally got it to isntall. ( took a while, but I did it )

Now, after I boot up Fedora it works for about 2 min then the mouse and keyboard just simply stop responding for no apparent reason.

Also, It seems I can only boot to Fedora once before I have to restart the "host" computer... However, I think thats an issue with Virtual PC and doesnt concern fedora...


Anyway, if you have reached thus far, I thank you greatly for looking at my problem!

-Mr. Bob

i'd be very incluned to assume it's M$'s problem really.. have you tried a decent alternative like vmware server?
