I started with a stock 2.6.6 kernel and applied the vs1.9.1 patch. I didn't have to do anything too tricky; I used the Fedora provided config file in /boot and did a 'make oldconfig' to set the vserver-specifc flags. To be safe I edited the /etc/fstab and /etc/grub.conf files so as not to use labels -- that was an issue when using vanilla kernels with previous RH releases.

Haven't tried it, so I can't say.

I just wanted a Red Hat system that could use a 2.6.x kernel without any fuss; using 2.6.x on RHEL3 or FC1 requires extra fiddling.
