An in-memory copy is made of the RVM data file. So you initially might like
to try a smaller rvm size (44M for the libc5 box, 22M for the glibc box).

How did you specify the partitions? Even when the disk only has one partition,
it is not possible to use /dev/hdb, the specific partition (/dev/hdb1) should 
be used.

It's probably best to try a smaller rvm size first. It is most likely the 
cause, since you have only barely over 90megs of memory to work with.
