Well also suse may be different, the principle is the following:
* make a skeleton
* cp files you need into that tree, /dev should not get populated!
No service should hardware related :-)

That is all it takes.
After that you can run the server ...

That is the shortest discription I am able to give to you.

Bootstraping suse may have the following steps:
vserver NAME build -m skeleton
mv /vserver/NAME/dev /vserver/NAME/dev.new
check all things, that the rpm program needs to run
After that install all needed packages within the host by doing a chroot

I hope that helps a bit to understand the vserver utils. They are plan bash,
if you want to read them /usr/share/util-vserver will hold them (or was
it /usr/lib/util-vserver
