vbox 1.5.6 crashes on boot after RHAS3 32bit installation

I installed RHAS3 (kernel 2.4.21-50 SMP) VM using vbox 1.5.6. The installation went fine and all, but as soon as the OS booted from /boot, it went into GURU_MEDITATION state :) and crashed. I personally thought the icon of a Vedic Rishi meditating was very interesting, as it is from my culture.

Interestingly, SLES9 and Ubuntu installs and subsequent restarts went through fine with vbox 1.5.6.

Anyhows, the vbox.log and vbox.png are attached here.

Please let me know the next steps.

Micheal, I found a workaround. Interestingly, kernel 2.4.21-50 ELsmp crashes, but the kernel 2.4.21-50 EL kernel works. The boot menu has both the kernels in it. The second one -- kernel 2.4.21-50 EL -- works fine.

sorry for the duplicate bugs 1552, 1553, but the bug logging interface is weird and does not show any button for NEXT step after uploading an attachment, so one wonders what the heck happened to the bug and what is the bug # after all.
