I think, with some limitations a suse vserver can also be created from
an ftp archive. the limitation is that I didn't find a bootstrap for
suse (I didn't deal much with bootstraps so far) so it means there have

my suse installation scripts also need to install the packages twice,
since aaa_base and ncurses are not installed on the first run (don't ask
me why). this produces more traffic than desired.
