--I liked the livecd, but it was 32-bit; so I...

o Cloned existing Centos 5--64 installation from sdb1 to hdd5, updated Grub, rebooted into it

+ Added openvz repo from http://download.openvz.org/openvz.repo
to /etc/yum.repos.d

' yum install vzctl vzctl-lib '

+ Set /boot kernel to: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.el5.028stab031.1

! To redo nvidia, had to install pkg ovzkernel-devel

' yum install ovzkernel-devel '

+ Reinstalled Nvidia binary driver.

--I got around it. Installed a template manually into /vz/template/cache and went from there.

+ Added " echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward " to boot.local

+ /vz/template/cache is where downloaded stuff goes...

+ Copied downloaded templates so they can be insalled: /vz/template/cache # cp /mnt/cdtemp/openvz/* .

REFERENCE:
http://wiki.openvz.org/Basic_operations_in_OpenVZ

+ Created new VM:
' vzctl create 101 --ostemplate debian-4.0-i386-minimal '
( root disk will be in /vz/private/101 )

' vzlist -a '

' vzctl start 101 '
vzctl exec 101 ' ps ax '

--Looks like adjusting shmpages is only useful on the livecd.

--Note that I was able to skip the NAT step. (I have cable broadband Internet and a DHCP/NAT router.)

--Now all I need to do is set up the guest to do something $useful/spiffy like Web serving, and test performance results. Smile
