Book review: User Mode Linux by Jeff Dike
I definitely saved hours of futile attempts here. If the free software community wishes to compete against products such as VMware then tools such as UML need to be created, tested and polished. You’ll find authoritative advice on bootup, compilation, administration, specialized configurations, and much more. UML’s efficient approach to storing filesystem changes In-depth discussion of User Mode Linux networking and security Centrally managing User Mode Linux instances, and controlling their hardware resources Implementing clusters and other specialized configurations Setting up User Mode Linux servers, step-by-step: This is always good for server consolidation, security and development.
The first few chapters quickly introduce the bare essentials. By the end of the second chapter you should have gained enough knowledge to understand if the technology is applicable to your infrastructure or not.

So unless it is 3 am and systems are failing I would recommend supporting the author and ordering the book. This is a neat technique for enabling multiple virtual machines to share the same file system and thus avoid the unnecessary disk space and memory costs of full multiple instances.
Being a clear community effect with industrial support I expect UML will pop up in all kinds of packages in unexpected and diverse ways. If you want dime readable book to help you deliver a working UML environment or need to make quick deployment decisions I would recommend this book as a good basis to build upon. You can try out new distributions, experiment with buggy software, and even test security.

This book is for doing people.
Chapter thirteen the last describes the future and hints at fun developments to come. In the oncoming world of dual processor, quad processor desktop environments and beyond, the subject area will surely evolve into a more generally valuable technique for a much wider audience who wish to fully use the capacity of their systems.
With User Mode Linux you can create virtual Linux machines within a Linux computer and use them to safely test and debug applications, network services, and even kernels.
