I have tried. I'm not even close to a good enough programmer. I also
tried asking people I knew who had more of a clue in that direction -
but they either didn't have the time - or the know how :(
I was hoping perhaps a need for vserver for 2.5 would be something more
people would want - and then perhaps jacques could have a look - who
knows it might be a quick job for someone who actually knows what he's

I have no idea - I just think that's what they change (aren't really
sure right now). you can search on posts from me on this - I posted the
things that didn't match with the USAGI-patch and vserver.

A fine idea - if it actually boots - but most often the problem is that
the kernel doesn't get far enough for such a solution to work.
I think I would have to switch to Lilo. Not a problem for me - except I
hate switching stuff that could potentially breake and make me have to
find a screen and keyboard for the machine :(
