My Ibex is virtually panicking!

I want to check out Intrepid but I do not want to install it on my only machine since I go to
college online. I do not have enough hard drive space to make another partition to install it on
so I decided that I would make a virtual machine. I use the latest version of VirtualBox on
Kubuntu 8.04. My problem is that every time I try to install 8.10 I get a kernel panic. Here is
what I did and got the same problem with each using Kubuntu, Ubuntu, and the alternate version.
Downloaded the iso file. MD5 sum is correct. Made a new virtual machine. Panic from iso
as boot disk after I try to install. Burn disk at 4X to use as a boot disk and yes I did that
correctly. Make a new virtual machine. Panic from CD as boot disk after I try to install. I also
get a kernel panic when I try to check the CD's or iso's for defects. Memtest works fine but that
doesn't use the kernel, I think.
I have a couple of virtual machines from DOS 6.2 to XP, Kubuntu 8.04 with KDE 4, and a few
other linux distros so I know how to work with Vbox. I know how to edit files inside an iso, if
that would fix this. I've been on *buntu for almost a year, use AIX at work and overcame heinous
upgrade and nvidia problems (envy is a godsend, thank you Alberto!) so I guess I've graduated from
noob. I can't find anything useful about this on the internets and I have no chickens for
voodoo. If anyone has some ideas I would love to try them out. I can't wait until October :-(
