"In this HowTo I will describe how to prepare a CentOS 5.6
server for OpenVZ. With OpenVZ you can create multiple Virtual
Private Servers (VPS) on the same hardware, similar to Xen and the
Linux Vserver project. OpenVZ is the open-source branch of

licensed under the GPL license, and the user-level tools are under
the QPL license.
