Installing Redhat Linux 5.2 on ESXi 5.1

I need to install Redhat Linux 5.2 on a VM to test an old application. When I try to install it on a ESXi 5.1 VM I get the following error when I try to install: " Bad pmd in pte_alloc: 000000e7 Kernal panic: Failed to allocate buffer hash table...."

I am not the best at Linux but has anyone been able to instal Redhat 5.2 in ESXi 5.1?

I downloaded the 5.2 ISO from this location thanks to the help of an E.E  Linux expert...

What memory are you allocating?
Reduce to 960 or less

Thanks!!! I reduced the memory to 512MB and was able to start the install. Now my problem is the install is not seeing the LSI Parallel SCSI adapter.. :-(

@compdigit44
You would be better asking about that in the VM group, if Andrew doesn't know the fix then no-one does
