thanks for the reply!
this might be a case of i-am-my-brothers-idiot. once i start something
inside the vserver, like apache, then it shows up in the host context with
vserver-stat and 'vserver running'. however, doing the exact same thing
with the precompiled versions... the vserver shows as running even before
i start anything in it. makes me think i'm doing something crazy. gcc
version is: 2.96, out of redhat update rpm's.
yes, i can boot to the 3ware card. i have 10 or so hosts doing exactly
that. for the price, and stability i've experienced over the last (god,
has it been) 2 years.
i tend to agree with your sentiment, presuming it doesn't cost the
maintainer anything real in terms of time/hassle and/or kernel
