The first few chapters quickly introduce the bare essentials.
Now, for the first time, the creator and maintainer of User Mode Linux shows how to put it to work hands-on. The book is a mid sized pager, split over thirteen chapters.
If the free software community wishes to compete against products such as VMware then tools such as UML need to be created, tested and polished. So unless it is 3 am and systems are failing I would recommend supporting the author and ordering the book.
I personally gain more pleasure from the paper versions and find it much easier to absorb knowledge than reading from a screen. With User Mode Linux you can create virtual Linux machines within a Linux computer and use them to safely test and debug applications, network services, and even kernels.

In the oncoming world of dual processor, quad processor desktop environments and beyond, the subject area will surely evolve into a more generally valuable technique for a much wider audience who wish to fully use the capacity of their systems.
An Interview with Jeff Dike – The creator of User Mode Linux (LinuxHelp) 
This book is for those of us that wish for a practical understanding of deploying UML within a realistic jrff. This book is for those of us that wish for a practical understanding of deploying UML within a realistic environment Relevance to free software UML is pure free software.
Pros If you want a readable book to help you deliver a working UML environment or need to make quick deployment decisions I would recommend this book as a good basis to build upon. What User Mode Linux is, how it works, and its uses in Linux networks Key applications, including server consolidation, development, and disaster recovery Booting and exploration: The following chapters zoom in on specific issues from the file system to networking, security, deployment and compiling.
Book review: User Mode Linux by Jeff Dike
You can try out new distributions, experiment with buggy software, and even test security. The man obviously knows his subject and has definitely spent restless nights solving subtle and elusive bugs.
Chapter thirteen the last describes the future and hints at fun developments to come. This is always good for server consolidation, security and development. I definitely saved hours of futile attempts here. Virtualization is a hot topic. This book is for doing people. It covers everything from getting started through running enterprise-class User Mode Linux servers. People that are wondering is UML applicable in our environment? The technique allows you to run multiple sandboxed virtual instances of Linux from one machine under a master Linux operating system.
If you want a readable book to help you deliver a working UML environment or need to make quick deployment decisions I would recommend this book as a good basis to build upon. How do we get things done? The author Jeff Dike is obviously the best voice to communicate the knowledge required for reaching practical goals. In this book, a potentially complex subject area has been tamed and discussed with well grounded commonsense and practical examples by the original creator and current maintainer of the software.
Virtualization is a hot topic The contents The book is a mid sized pager, split over thirteen chapters.

UML’s efficient approach to storing filesystem changes In-depth discussion of User Mode Linux networking and security Centrally managing User Mode Linux instances, and controlling their hardware resources Implementing clusters and other specialized configurations Setting up User Mode Linux servers, step-by-step: Being a clear community effect with industrial support I expect UML will pop up in all kinds of packages in unexpected and diverse ways.
Well known throughout the Linux technical community, he has been active in Linux kernel development for more than five years. Book Description With User Mode Linux you can create virtual Linux machines within a Linux computer and use move to safely test and debug applications, network services, and even kernels. UML is pure free software. Chapter Seven describes in detail how to configure a networked set of virtual instances. License This work is licensed under a Libux Commons Attribution 3.
By the end of the second chapter you should have gained enough knowledge to understand if the technology is applicable to your infrastructure or not. You’ll find authoritative advice on bootup, compilation, administration, specialized configurations, and much more.
Book review: User Mode Linux by Jeff Dike
I particularly liked the description of COW files in chapter four. You will not gain a great oversight into general virtualization techniques or a market survey of tools that sit in competition.
A patch on the Linux kernel that enhances the kernels functionality in ways not initially considered. This is a neat technique for enabling multiple virtual machines to share the same file system and thus avoid the unnecessary disk space and memory costs of full multiple instances.
For those considering applying this particular technology to our usee environments, the book will act as a good and solid starting point. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.
