Oracle 10.2.0.1 RAC install on VirtualBox

Hi,

I am trying to install Oracle 10g RAC on Oracle Linux 5.5 using VirtualBox on Ubuntu.
I have succedded in installing the clusterware however when I install the database software, the guest O/S's crash along with the host OS.
This always seems to happen the installer is almost done copying the binaries across to the remote host.
I have also tried to install this by installing the database binaries on the local node and use the addNode script to add to the remote node. I get the same results.

Any advice on this will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
This is always the last snip of the install log before the crash:
