Hi list!

I recently acquired a virtual server at hosteurope.de

However, I slowly loose my patience with the OpenSuse installation and
would like to have my fellow Gentoo on it.

I already found this guide:
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/vps/openvz-howto.xml

But it doesn't say much about how to run the guest.

How do I have to configure the kernel?
Which sources can I use?
What about a hardened system?

What is this "vzfs" file system?
Can I use partitions?

When anything goes wrong, can I still use the repair mode? How does it
shut down my server before giving me a fresh installation from which I
can chroot into it?

Thanks in advance,
Florian Philipp
