or backport what's in testing/squeeze to stable/lenny, as i've been testing and 0.30.216-pre2864 has worked so far (at least
with ext3).

it's pretty easy (see attached patch for required changes to package):
 * wget -Nv
 * dpkg-source -x util-vserver_0.30.216-pre2864-1.dsc
 * cd util-vserver-0.30.216-pre2864
 * patch -p1 <../util-vserver_0.30.216-pre2864-1~udo50+1.patch
 * dpkg-buildpackage -D -us -uc

sorry, i've used the util-vserver utilities compiled from source and they
work just as well as those in the debian package (as should be expected),
but i've personally found the start-up scripts in the debian package better
integrate with a debian system than those upstream, so i lean towards the
debian package (thanks micah).
