besides the services you _want_ to be available on a
vserver, there are some services, you do not want to
be started/scripts you do not want to be executed.
for example the hwclock update at reboot, or the random
reseeding at startup, or the font change, etc ...
you have to edit your runlevel scripts /etc/rc* to
do just the bare minimum (if necessary at all)

add it ...
