Question How to install into a directory? (linux-vserver)

I've installed slackware 10 on a small server here, patched the kernel for linux-vserver and now I want to install a template vserver in /vservers/template/, using the slackware 10 install-CD mounted on /mnt/cdrom

I tried to go to /mnt/cdrom/slackware/a and do a installpkg -root /vservers/template *.tgz but the vserver was unstartable. Any tips on how to install slackware into a directory?

You could just copy your existing sys.
mkdir /mnt/somedir
cd /mnt/somedir
mkdir mnt proc
cd /
umask 000; cp-avx bin boot dev etc home lib root sbin sys tmp usr var /mnt/somedir; umask 022
Note that mnt and proc are not copied.
This will allow you to copy a running system anywhere.
