Hi Corey,

Thanks for your try.
That's what I need yeah, "a (nearly) bullet proof chroot" to launch one
And I want to use VServer as my "bullet proof chroot".

 i think vcontext.

I'll Google for it.

I think so but I'll need this (one basic host with VServer support for
instance, and one VServer just running X).

OK, but is there any assisted way of knowing exactly what I need to keep,
just knowing the application I need ?
