Michael, thanks for your comment. You certainly are right.

Ernie, thanks for your pointers. They are not exactly a chapter on how to
do the whole jail manually new style - exactly as Michael says - similar
to what is found in FreeBSD handbook (alas, for old style). However,
thanks to your pointer, I've found http://jail-primer.sourceforge.net/
which at a first glance looks comprehensive and decent reading, and
combined with my experience of setting up jails "by the book" in the past,
is sufficient for me to do the same /etc/jail.conf way - I've got one
running already; it will need some careful walkover sill, but I'm in
business.

Thanks again for your insights and help, Ernie and Michael!

Valeri
