That gave us IPMI access for the Bare Metal server we put in place, but no KVM access for VPS … for VPS, I need to create an ISO of my install, upload that and then they effectively ‘dd’ it to the VPS, which is cool, but I need to figure out how to create an image based on a VirtualBox build on a Mac OS X system :)
