Thanks I'll check it out. I just went through a Fedora Core 3 install of
the main server and was very unhappy with all the 'stuff' included when I
didn't request it. I'm hoping to come up with a _really_ minimal set for
the main server and the vserver.

RAM/swap issue. IDE drives? And the best a friend ran into was a bad
controller/cable combination though that was connected to a IDE RAID card.

Different. Jacques is still doing some development on it and I like the
brain-dead simple interface for something I do rarely -- create new
vserver. I only use it from the command line so the gui is text based.

I'll look at your list and see what it will take to test it on the system
I am working on right now.
