I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed and would like to create some instances of User Mode Linux (UML) using bootstrap, but all information I can find seems out-dated, and my simple attempts fails.

Any one that knows this?

I have the following packages installed:

  1. uml-utilities
  2. user-mode-linux
  3. dhcp3-client
  4. dhcp3-server

I would like to get one UML instance up with the ability to connect to internet and install further debian packages with apt-get.

How should I configure rootstrap.conf?
