The SKAS4 patch is for both guest and host kernel.
That's not like the skas3 patch which is only for the host kernel. But
now, it doesn't matter! Use the skas4 patch!

Jeff Dike released two versions of the skas4 patch, the first one is
for the 2.6.24 host and guest kernel, the last one is for the 2.6.25
host and guest kernel. You may fint them on the mailing list archive.

I don't think so. Since the first release of the first skas4 patch,
they have been released through this mailin list. So, as I told
before, you may find all patches you need in the mailing list archive.

The latest one released by Jeff Dike in this list.

Of course. There are a lot of ready to use images, for example you can
find them at http://uml.nagafix.co.uk/

You may use some images you want from nagafix and try them.

Why not? It's one of the main uses of UML.

It depends on what you're looking for.
Ask and you'll be replied! :)
