I'd be happy to but first we'll need to port the vserver patches to work
with the RHEL 3-beta (taroon) kernel. :(
It seems the Red Hat kernels are patched with NPTL, so vanilla kernels
are definitely not supported, and as I found will cause problems with
threaded apps. So I can't use vserver with a vanilla kernel.
The RHEL kernel source can be found here (30MB):
or from RHN (I don't know if this link will work for you):
I'll talk to you more about this on irc...
