vserver: Virtual private servers and security contexts1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

VServer virtual servers operate like a normal Linux server, but allow many independent servers to be run simultaneously in one box. These can involve normal services such as telnet, mail, Web, and SQL servers - in most cases using a standard configuration. The services are unaware of the virtual server concept. Each virtual server has its own user account database and root password. Each vserver uses standard packages and runs at the same speed as a non-VServer installation.

Optionaly supports per context Quota/Disk limits
