Yep I think 7) is where the problem is :) Luckily I remember what I did....
mostly! The main problems are because of the way SuSE init works.

1) edit the main init script /vservers/<foo>/etc/init.d/rc and after the
initial comment, add:

2) edit the /vservers/<foo>/etc/init.d/network script and put some "exit
0"'s in it. Otherwise you get a hang on vserver startup/shutdown when the
guest tries to flush the interfaces/addresses or something.

I think last time I said this, someone asked me "Why not just chkconfig
network off?" Well if you do that then all the other services that *depend*
on "network" being turned on, wont run. This is because SuSE uses innserv(?)
or something. This problem doesn't happen on other distro's I don't think
(except Gentoo?? /shrug)

Hope this helps!

If you still don't have any luck, let me know and I'll have a closer look at
my vserver guest image.
