Hello,
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 x64
there is a way to install a centos vps on ubuntu without using a virtual machine?
I read something about OpenVZ and LXC. These are capable of creating centos vps or only an ubuntu vps?
Thanks

ThanksEither OpenVZ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenVZ) or LXC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LXC) should work for you. If you are able, try each first, preferably on a test box, to see which one is better for your needs.

So the answer is yes, you can install either on Ubuntu server and run centOS as a separate entity.
