Mmmh... these are very old version and lots of security leaks have been
fixed in the meantime.

The slides are mainly about the next-generation tools (see
http://www.linux-vserver.org/index.php?page=alpha+util-vserver). The
man-pages are outdated and are not an authoritive information source at
the moment.

'--help' of the vserver 0.29.214 script should tell a lot...

The important reference-documentation about the configuration scheme
is available in an abstract XML format (see doc/configuration.xml).
Stylesheets for more human readable formats are welcome (afaik,
Olivier Poitrey is already working on a DocBook stylesheet but I do
not know the state).

Else, as said, the man-pages are out-of-date and do not reflect the
current state. But I am not sure if I want to stay at manually written
man-pages, or if they should be written in DocBook.
