there's a great script written by paul, along with an easy to understand
description:
http://www.paul.sladen.org/vserver/debian/
I modified this script, adding support for installation on logical volume devices.

I'm running a suse (physical server) / debian (virtual server) system as well as
a debian/debian system.

is there a tool for debian packet unification? I don't think so. I thought
unification is only working for rpm base vhosts (with the tools available so far).

for security updates you simply run a command which compares all installed
debian packages and checks if there are any important security updates. any new
packets will be updated immediately.
