Yup:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.2/html/Virtual_Server_Administration/index.html

I won't lie and say it's particularly thorough documentation -- most
of it covers using the configuration web GUI -- but it's readable, and
I figured it'd be a good place to start as I'm running RHEL.

I have now, and none of them seem to be my problem.  Many are little
bugs or resource allocation issues, but they all appeared to be
problems that exhibited themselves once things were at least
marginally working.  In my case, I can't even get the dang thing
working at all.

I'd love to, but I have this problem with my email address: it ends in
.edu. :) Getting a single test box took me about four years, so if
you're willing to put this thread on hold until 2013, then I should be
able to get a bigger test environment. :)
