Now I see directory /usr/lib/util-vserver/distributions/ with whole bunch
of distributions inside, and I don't see one for Fedora Core 10. It
appears that only those present are available to me, so my next question
would be is there a way to add distributions to this directory manually?

How would I build fc10 guest using rpm or template?
Is it 'vserver build -m rpm --interface xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -- -d f10'?
