I'm now able to log into my UML guest system (thanks!), but when I use vi within the guest I can't edit properly, it appears that there is some character mapping issue. Basically, I can't enter insert mode and then I can't use :q! to close the vi session it just hangs. I can enter text into a file using 'cat > filename', but this isn't very productive.
I'm logging into the UML guest by ssh'ing to the host system (FC5 - 2.6.18) and then running the UML kernel instance and logging into the tty0 'console'. Let me know what additional information I can provide to figure out what isn't working.
