Question Problem Booting FedoraCore2 in Vmware WS 4.0.


I tried installing Fedora core2 in VMWare and I had problem booting Linux.

I am having Windows XP Professional as my host OS and Installed Fedora Core 2 as guest OS in VMWare Workstation 4.0.

I used Fedora core's Test mode installation. The installation was SUCCESSFUL.

I tried rebooting VMWare workstation to boot into Linux. I got the grub screen and I selected Linux... then I got the following message..

Uncompressing Linux... ok booting the kernel
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 4 of device 0000:00:07.1
audit(1129882639.304:0) initialized.
running in testmode

RedHat nash version 3.5.22 starting
kernel panic: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown -block(0,0)

Previously I was using Redhat 7.3 as guest OS in VMWare and everything was fine.. this porblem is only with Fedora Core.

Does VMWare Workstation 4.0 support Fedora Core 2 ??

did anyone have this problem ??

I know this may not be the right place to ask questions abt VMWare workstation .. but I believe some guys may be familiar with the above Linux problem ..
