While UML has been more extensively hacked out and developed, there is also
Plex86 (http://www.plex86.org/). with a *very* small patch to the guest
kernel and a minimal `monitor' module in the host operating system, you
can run a full version of Linux inside a virtual machine. Personally I
found UML a poor match for certain tasks because it is linux turned into
an application, *not* a virtual machine.
Get the CVS version; details at:
You'll also need to get the patch, etc from:
