Wow, thats great! Exactly what i need!

i've tried that one week ago (with suse 9.2 prof.) ...

(1) made 2 partitions
(2) installed suse to each partition (making 2 minimal installations)
(3) used the one as vserver-host, the other as a template for a vserver
(4) deploy-vserver ... skeleton
(5) copied the template to there
(6) replaced fstab
(7) done some thinks i don't remind
(8) tryied to start and it doesn't work :-((
(9) searched a bit but no solution found

i think i've done some big mistake in step 7 ... so i will retry next
weekend ... and post the result ...

some closed-source products like confixx (and others)
