Default Needed some clarifications: OpenVZ in Debian Etch Howto!

I came across http://howtoforge.com/debian_etch_openvz

And I am just wondering:

1) Is it mandatory to setup RAID?

2) What are the specific reasons to remove directories and links? With they conflict with openVZ in debian etch?

I meant to point to the first steps like follows:

cd /
rm cdrom
unlink vmlinuz.old
unlink vmlinuz
rmdir selinux/
rmdir initrd
unlink initrd.img.old
rmdir opt
rmdir srv/

Thanks for the clarifications.

Nope, it adds data security if one disk should fail. You will keep a running system and thus time to replace the defect disk. Very practical on production systems. If you're on a test system, go ahead and skip RAID.

The guest system doesn't have a CD drive, uses the same kernel as the host system, etc. That's why these items get removed in the guest system.

Thanks.

I followed the tutorial in this site without the --initrd flag at the end while creating the kernel image and it failed.

However, I created one with the --initrd flag, but I landed at the same situation as at this thread: http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=...+etch#msg_7741

I could not see any pointers at all. Any suggestions?

I don't see a command with --initrd on http://howtoforge.com/debian_etch_openvz
Where did you take that command from?
