and possible additions

proper editing will be done after the information within is accurate.


set up host as per gentoo how-to
and create template as it specifies.
add desired common services.
start and test the template.

create new-guest using skeleton method.
cd into it and remove all entries

then copy with
cp -la gentoo/* new-guest
to create hard links to the gentoo template.

cd into new-guest and
remove completely, etc, root, home and var
i have setups for most internet services on
the gentoo template and a regular user defined
therefore home gets moved too. (should /usr/portage
be moved and later recopied as 'real' files?)

if i want to remove the ability to run certain
services in this vserver, now is the time to
remove the links to them so they are no longer a part
of this guest.

this is only necessary when allowing others
shell access. most people would create a very
minimal template server so this normally would not
be necessary, but with my setups, i want all
services available to every server even if i do
not run them.

then run setattr --iunlink * ONLY in the following
directories inside new-guest
(should there be others?)

setattr --~iunlink undoes any damage done to files that should not have that

then cp -Rp /vservers/gentoo/etc and var and root and home
this will give real files to edit and use in the new-guest config.

configure new-guest as necessary
start new-guest and enter to verify its operation.
