This is a followup to my thread "linux-only jail possible?" of a few 
months ago. I've been pretty successful in my efforts and now have a jail 
which contains only CentOS binaries and runs Python, Apache, sshd, 
PostgreSQL, yum, rpm, etc without problems. Since that's what I plan to 
use for my current project I haven't tested much else but I expect good 
results from many other common programs and use cases.

I have documented my notes on the FreeBSD wiki. Thanks to bz@ for getting 
me access. Please look it over and give it a try if you have any 


Please let me know if you encounter anything inaccurate or incomplete in 
the howto, or if you have comments or additional information about it.

Please trim the CC: list on replies.
