 I'm trying to prepare vserver demo CD/USB disk,
what I would like is minimal system with vserver utils(done), and then
various hosted environments: various linux distributions running as
vservers, with some minimal abilities, at least ability to enter them, both
via vserver * enter and via ssh *, ability to check updates from net, and
upgrade the whole system.
 What I'm missing are minimal system images ( something similiar to what
UML people provide - you download redhat6.2 image, enter it and voile'a,
you'r running rh6.2, same for suse etc..etc..), and some documentation, for
 debian ( minimal system can be created using debootstrap and also untarred
 from old installation disks ):
  apt-get update
  apt-get upgrade
 gentoo ( minimal system distributed on installation CDs and as stage3
 tarball ):
  emerge sync
  emerge -u world

Can anyone help with filling up the blanks? ( ie: redhat, slackware, suse,
etc.. ). Any suggestions as to what dists would be interesting?

And another thing - can anyone share success stories about running X inside
vserver? It would be nice to show off machine running different X server on
different terminals, every one would be different dist and different X
generation (4.2,4.3,3.3..), I'm rather server guy so any suggestions would
be welcome as to how to accomplish something like that.

..The program fails and the power plant explodes, poisoning the earth 
and the sea. Famine and disease sweep the world. All die.
   Oh, the embarrassment.
