[vbox-dev] Starting the virtual machine 0%

I installed VirtualBox-1.5.4_27034_fedora7-1.x86_64.rpm
on my fedora 7 with amd64 cpu, kernel

After configuring the VM with a physical drive (via commandline):

VBoxManage internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename 
/root/.VirtualBox/hd.vmdk -rawdisk /dev/sdb -register
(which works just fine, and the vmdk file hd.vmdk gets created);
and setting up the CD/DVD drive to the image: Fedora-8-i386-DVD.iso

In otherwords, I just wanted to test and see if I could get this thing
working - run 32 bit linux in a VM on top of 64 bit linux.

I start the machine, and I get the console screen (black) and a small
progress bar banner pops up saying: Starting the virtual machine  0%
and it stays there. *Nothing happens afterwards*.

So, I gdb'ed the running processes of vbox, and the file is attached.
Could someone help me gat past this issue?

P.S: I even tried using a dynamic virtual hd 12GB in size. No go!
