there will be some rearrangement in the pages soon ...
until then, you'll have to guess, search or simply ask ;)

http://www.13thfloor.at/VServer/patch-2.4.22-ctx17a.diff.bz2
(newest stable kernel release patch)

http://www.13thfloor.at/VServer/patches-2.4.22-p10c17/16_ulimit-unfix.diff.bz2
(fix for the ulimit 'problem')

you'll have to live with the chrootsafe() message for now,
but if you want, you can remove it from the tools ...

best,
Herbert
