Very nicely too.

If I missed it in the original message and you aren't set on Debian I put
a couple of Redhat Linux 7.3 servers together a few weeks ago. On pretty
low end hardware too.
I also use Linuxconf, another fine package by Jacques, and with the
Vserver-admin module added it takes 60-100 seconds to create a new
vserver from a template vserver.
 These really are low end hardware. PII/233, 128 MB RAM, IDE drives.
Jacques told me once he was doing it in less than 30 seconds.
