Thanks Daniel!  I use an 8GB RAM drive, so I will shut it off while running scans as big as I was.  

Really appreciate the reply!

James,

This error means that your computer does not have enough memory to continue. Zenmap can be a memory hog at times. You 
can try a few different things that may help:

1. Do your scan from a machine with more RAM.
2. In your zenmap.conf (on Linux: ~/.zenmap/zenmap.conf), in the [output_highlight] section, set enable_highlight = 
False 3. Do your scan with the Nmap command-line tool, then load the output into Zenmap. This will avoid a memory crash 
during scanning, but you may still have trouble viewing the output later.
4. Do smaller scans and view them separately.
5. If you have Python programming skills, audit Zenmap's memory usage and submit a patch to reduce its memory footprint.

Good luck!

Dan
