There is only ONE kernel on a vserver system, allowing different
virtual "servers" running in different contexts. This is totally
different from UserMode Linux (UML) where every virtual server
can run a different kernel.

With linux-vserver you have to compile one kernel for your system,
patched witch the vserver-patch(es) and with all the functionality
and modules you would need to run your business on this system
without vservers.
