I proceed this way :

I installed a minimal system, with just sshd, inetd and qmail as MTA.

I compiled my own kernel 2.4.19, that I patched with

I downloaded the rpm, transformed it into tgz by "alien -t vserver.deb"
(you can make a debian package by "alien-d" instead of "alien -t").

So, all the vserver-utilities worked fine.

I also chbind all my network services to the root-server ip... qmail,
ssh and inetd were wrapped by my own v_qmail, v_ssh and v_inetd, taken
from examples in the tgz.

Then I updated all the symlinks in /etc/rc0.d , /etc/rc1.d... to link
well on the new v_* wrappers. All work fine during the boot.

You just have tu create other symlinks in /etc/rc*.d, for vserver to
start at boot time.

Good Luck :)
