    Installing Oracle Linux 5.8 on Virtual Box

      I'm trying to install Oracle Linux 5.8 on Virtual Box. I have downloaded V31120-01 and burned to the DVD, I think successfully.

      However, when I start the Virtual machine, I get the Opening screen, "Oracle Linux" the little picture of the penguin guy, etc, so I think my DVD is good.

      The screen says, "To install or upgrade in graphical mode, press the <enter> key." So I do.

      Several lines of text flow across the screen, but then the process seems to stop with no prompt on what to do next or any indication that an error has occurred, it just stops.

      The last lines I can see are:

      ACPI: bus type pci registered
      PCI: Using configuration type 1
      ACPI: Interpreter enabled
      ACPI: Using PIC for interrupt routing
      ACPI: No dock devices found
      ACPI: PCI Root Bridge [PCI0] (0000:00)
      ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKA] (IRQs *5 9 10 11)
      ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKB] (IRQs 5 9 10 *11)
      ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKC] (IRQs 5 9 *10 11)
      ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKD] (IRQs 5 *9 10 11)
      Linux Plug and Play Support v0.97 (c) Adam Belay
      pnp: PnP ACPI init
      pnp: PnP ACPI: found 5 devices
      usbcore: registered new driver usbfs
      usbcore: registerd new driver hub
      PCI: Using ACPI for IRQ routing
      PCI: If a device doesn't work, try 'pci=routeirq". If it helps, post a report
      NetLabel: Initializing
      NetLabel: domain hash size = 128
      NetLabel: protocols = UNLABELED CIPS0v4
      NetLabel: unlabeled traffic allowed by default
      ACPI: DMAR not present
      PCI-GART: No AMC northbridge found.
      NET: Registered protocol family 2

      I'm not sure if it's waiting for some input from me, or if there is a problem, but nothing happens beyond this point until I power down the virtual machine.
