I'm having trouble installing red hat 6 in VirtualBox on a Fedora 15 host. As soon as I choose install from the initial menu, I get this kernel error. I can't copy and paste the error so here is a print-screen image. I'm not even sure what it means, can somebody help?

How did you set up the virtual machine? – wallyk Sep 3 '11 at 19:59
Page fault is to do with memory and it comes after an alloc, did you give it enough memory to use? – DrYap Sep 3 '11 at 20:04
I have it 3 gb of memory so I wouldn't think that would be the issue. Otherwise it was the default virtualbox setup - 12mb of video memory,8 gb hard drive – tkcsam Sep 3 '11 at 21:20

Try bumping up the hard drive space. Try for at least 20 - 30GB.

Without seeing your hardware specs it's tough to tell. A Kernel Panic on startup is usually because something broke or you don't have enough disk space, memory, cpu, etc. Since this is a new install I would guess you aren't giving it enough resources.
