Actually, that is the entire message sendmail is giving me, nothing else.
It's the same message it writes in maillog
sendmail[2458]: rejecting new messages: min free: 100
That part I haven't figured out yet.

Well, I did find the thread about the /var/run commands,(THANK YOU FOR THE
WEB ARCHIVE) and I did go over it, and I had to modify the mysqld shutdown a
bit, but it's shutting down properly without giving errors!! YAY! The only
thing that is giving errors when shutting down is the kernel logger, which I
haven't figured out why yet.

I've been playing with linux for a while now, I'm not an expert at all, but
I'm learning slowly. I have tried the FreeVSD, but that was a total mess.
The vserver project seems so much more stable and easy to work with, and I
did not realize how new it is.
I do have some questions that I hope are not too stupid for this list.
I installed the vserver on a RH 7.2. I followed the instructions from the
I installed the kernel-2.4.17ctx-7.tar.gz exactly as in the documenation,
which seems to work fine, but lilo still wants to boot the original kernel
first, so I always have to select the 2.4.17 kernel when booting, how can I
get the 2.4.17 to boot first?
Next question is about the patches.
Was I supposed to patch the kernel? Or was the one I downloaded already
patched? Are the patches for people that wish to patch their own kernel, and
not use the one distributed? I'm just curious, since I never build a kernel
from scratch, or even patched one.

Thanks again for the help, I think the vservers are running well except for
the sendmail thing, which I will continue to look into.
