I bet vserver is sort of a remote controlled thing and it's
easier to read manuals on the local machine.

Yes, I'm currently working on a tool for creating vservers in
debian. I use some tricks around debootstrap's scripts and
redefine the list of basic packages and override debootstrap's
devices.tar.bz2 to fit the vserver's needs and remove all
unnecessary things. Finally, I want this tool to go to the
debian distribution but it's quite another story. ;)

I may line out things I came out with and it would be great to
discuss this if anyone has better ideas.
