This is I think a "synthetic vservers" concept application. Tools for that are
distributed in the latest Jacques Gélinas' version of vserver userspace tools
available on

You can get a summary of the "synthetic vservers" technology on in the "New
vservers commands".

By the way, Jacques' userspace vserver tools work perfectly with the latest
2.6-based ctx kernels, should anyone prefer the original 2.4 vserver management
style (I know I do!)
