when I try to install Ubuntu Server 8.04 in to Virtual PC 2007 and

I tried a zillion kernel parameters, "noreplace-paravirt",
"i8042.noloop", "noapic", "nolapic", "vga=791", etc.

cd-rom when it came time to read the package list (strange since it

Has anyone got 8.04 Server working under Virtual PC?  I'm trying to
get Ubuntu in the door!
