Package: util-vserver
Version: 0.30.210-7bpo2
Description: user-space tools for Linux-Vserver virtual private servers
 The util-vserver project provides the user-space tools for creating and
 managing the virtualization technology known as vservers. Vservers are a
 significantly advanced jail mechanism running inside a host linux server.
 Vservers can be used to securely partition resources such as processes,
 memory, network; logically separate services or run entirely different
 distributions all on a single system. Virtual private servers are separated
 from each other through security contexts, and as a result are completely
 unaware of each other, or of the host itself.

util-vserver is for managing virtual servers ... i'm using backported
util-vserver for vserver 2.x and kernels 2.6.x ... sarge version
0.30.204-5sarge3 is sufficient for vserver 1.2.x and kernel 2.4.x

try backported package for sarge:
apt-get -t sarge-backports install util-vserver
