Thank you Georges !

I now have my own Gentoo vserver too.. (and a rh80, and a rh73 :-)

I only have one annoying problem I haven't figured out.

I've cleaned out the runlevels boot and default for all crap not suppose
to be run including serial and other stuff.. actually there's almost
nothing left.

I have only problem though. I can enter vserver just fine, but if I run
vserver gentoo-vserver start

it fails with a message about /etc/rc.d/rc not found..

Any clues?

Thank you.
