Ok, another question coming from your answer. (Thanks for the speed in
your answer.)

/dev/hdv1 / ext3 defaults 1 1

What is the purpose of this line in my /etc/mtab? I found that it is
created at start time of the vserver. As I do not have any hdv drive I
suppose that it is to make happy some part of the system. Is it just to
inform that a "basic" mount point exists, and the use of a non existant
drive is to avoid problems when stopping the server, as if it try to
unmount it it will not affect the "real" drives?

Then to reach the feeling of correct basic understanding of the vserver I need a /proc datamining session in all the howtos, wiki and archives.
