Jail question

Yes, this is possible.

When I get into work, I'll share with you the recipe (I have a script called "update4.sh" which I run after building [or rsync'ing] a 4.x box to an 8.x box to become a vimage; note that I didn't say "jail" -- 4.x runs better as a VNET jail than a regular jail).

We've not had much luck in running 4.x as a non-vnet jail under 8.x whereas vnet-jail works wonders (with a couple binaries replaced, like netstat, ifconfig, ps, and top for example).

Hello list!

I would like to install an old version of freebsd let's say 4.6 in a
jail. Is that possible.

Host is 8.3-stable amd64
