I got hold on a dedicated server running Cent os 4 with blue quartz.

Now i was planning on turning it into 4 vps's running a distro but the thing is the server wont install the disto.

If anyone can help with this or do it for me there is a vps available for you.

Thanks

just cause you have a dedicated server it doesnt meen they will give you the rigght to change the operating system.

have you consulted your host on this issue. maybe they have ristricted you from doing what you want.

You can run virtual server software with any distribution. You'll need to recompile the kernel and various other things. Google should come up with the howto's.

I suppose i should have really have updated this.

I managed to get it working, the problem i had was that although i had the account called "root" i didn't have full root access and that is why it would not do anything for me.
