Although unsure about the reasons why this happened, I’m reporting this since it might be useful in future.

Situation: have a working small (6 MB) Linux Live CD with kernel 2.6.8-1 running in VMWare workstation, defined as Linux 2.2.x Kernel guest OS.

Tried same in VMWare Free Server 2.0 Beta defining guest OS as Other Linux 32 bit and I got a kernel panic with following screenshot:

Panic

Apparently the reason was that VM OS needed to be defined as “Other 32 bit” guest OS… at least this solved the issue to me.
