gentoo is just yet another distro, which is IMHO!! (no war plz) better than
anything else like RH, suse, mandr, deb, etc (bsd excluded..)
i just wrote that it annoys me that unification doesn't work....
...bcos those tools are mainly written for RH,... and deb? mandr? (-> rpm)
i have no clue how the current tools work, but i think it should be possible
to write a tool which would work on no matter what distro you run it on

the patch doesn't "cleanly" work together with vserver+xfs (i use xfs..)
the kernel compiled without any complaints, and IIRC the server booted, but
vserver didn't work...and other stuff? can't remeber
