Parallels/Ubuntu set up help?

Asked by eambos (8889points) July 25th, 2008

I have installed Parallels Workstation, and I have the ISO file of the most recent ubuntu distro. Every time I try and set up a virtual OS I get the Ubuntu start up and then some red lines and an error message (Ill post a screenshot). I am waiting for the actual disks to come in the mail, but I thought I would try and do it this way while I wait. If Somone with experience could tell me what I am doing wrong, or if there is a problem, I’d be very happy.

I am running Windows XP SP2 With 512mb RAM (I know, horrible) and 40Gb spare memory.

http://Parallels.com has a library of pre-built appliance images that you can just download and boot. I believe they have a pre-installed Ubuntu that is already configured and waiting to go. You might want to take a look. Might save you some hassle.
