Is the correct method to use when creating a new vserver using
util-vserver on debian, (per mailing list.)

I am switching my debian servers from vserver to util-vserver as per
debian maintainer's remarks.

I worked with the following and had much success:
vserver NAME build --help (you don't trust me and want to read the options)
vserver NAME build -m debootstrap --interface eth0:IPADDRESS/NETMASK
--hostname NAME -- -d sid

>echo "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main" >>
>apt-get update
>apt-get install ssh
>passwd #set rootpassword

>Almost done?
>Yes: no public IP -> you should run iptables with the following option:
>iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING --src VSERVERIP -j SNAT --to PUBLICIP

>You can start the vserver!!!
>vserver NAME start

>Need help to find a package within debian:
>apt-cache search NAME

>I hope it helps, it is the best I can come up with
