I used this. I have a redhat 8 host systems and I chose the redhat 7.3 mini
install. It just requires disk 1 from the redhat 7.3. If you don't have
access to your server's cd-rom, you can simply download the ISO file to your
server's drive and mount it like
mount -t iso9660 -o loop redhatcd.iso /mnt/cdrom
It's nice, but it leaves off some things that I like to have installed.
Fortunately, I have a standard set of packages that I use so I was able to
create a skeleton image and then vrpm all the software I need. I then use
it as my source for creating new vservers.

Subject: [vserver] newvserver question
When running the command 'newvserver', so far I have always built an
image from an existing vserver configuration. This has worked fine, but
my curiosity has got the better of me:
What does selecting the options for 'Red Hat 7.3', 'Red Hat 8.0', etc.
do? In particular, do you need the RPMs at a particular location, or
will just having a set of Red Hat CDs do?
