Well, I've got to setup my file servers now. But after that, I won't be
able to re-install nor get them down until july next year ;-)

I don't plan to add many Vservers on those boxes, as I said, they will
host one or two for a start. I don't even plan to use advanced
functionalities like NgNet, unification,etc...

What I want to know is that if I setup my file servers now with the last
2.0 RC, is it risky, provided that once installed I cannot touch these
servers until july 2006 ?

The only thing that'll be done is individual security updates to the
hosted vservers and the host. But I do not want to touch the kernel...

The load will be low : These are Samba file servers for ~120 accounts and
max. 30-40 people connected at a time, for each host : I usually peak at
0.15 load.

The only thing I do with my vservers is : Build them (- m skeleton), fill
them with "urpmi --root", lauch them, and play ! Basically, the only
commands I use are "vserver xxx (build|start|stop|enter)". So nothing of
this has changed since 1.9.3 ?

Thx ;-)
