try to get the nomenclature in sync with Linux-VServer,
otherwise you'll confuse the hell out of everyone ..
- we call the physical machine 'host'
(so don't use host for the virtual entities)
- as we use isolation, there is no 'machine' which
gets virtualized, and thus, there is no VM :)
- the virtual entities are called 'guests' in our
nomenclature, so it would be appropriate to use
that as well (consistantly :)
We also repeatedly had the problem that links and
references to 'other' sites got stale and the infor-
mation was ultimately lost, so IMHO it would make
sense to put (at least a 'copy') it on the Linux-
VServer wiki ...

I'm sure it will help folks to get a slackware guest
installed, but in the long term, it would be a lot
better to use the already available util-vserver
functionality to do the necessary changes to the
check out /usr/lib*/util-vserver/distributions from
the util-vserver-build package, which already contains
post install/setup scripts for many distros
thanks for the contribution,
