edit your /etc/lilo.conf and make vserver the default; ie
default = linux-virtual
then just run lilo and it will place a star next to the default kernel I

You don't have to patch the kernel, you can use the one you downloaded
from the web site. It is already patched and compiled for you. If you want
to enable some special things then you have to download the kernel source
and patch it with the supplied patches. They are all available at the
project web site.
