Under OpenVZ, there is no choice for the user as far as the OS is
concerned. He has to live with Linux and Linux alone :-)

So, in OpenVZ I think there is not need to specify '<os>' at all. When
we are talking about a template, we are actually talking about what
becomes the file system for the VM, so we should probably have
something like this:


Also, it is possible to specify VM level and VM user/grp level disk
quotas for VMs in number of  1K blocks. These can also go under the
'disk' tag. But I think I will discuss this later.

        <quota level='vm'>102400</quota>
        <quote level='user' username='root'>102400</quota>
