Is it possible to install in User Mode Linux?

|I'm going to run FullPliant in User Mode Linux. Did anyone try this and are there known problems with this constallation.
I think the documentation and procedure is too complicated. Isn't it possible to make it easier?
Also I don't like the web forum, I would prefer a mailing list. What is the reason to not have a mailing list?

Looks like your browser (Konqueror ?) went in an infinit loop.

|Yes i posted the message an switched to another window. Some minutes later I saw that it's still reloading the page again and again. I'm using Opera 6.
For me the forum is very unefficent to use. What do other people think about a mailing list. I could host one.

Pliant has mailing list capabilities, and Heliogroup is providing us
plenty of bandwidth and storage for that.
It's simply that I prefer the forum because it's sorting threads and
enabling to attach patches that are not mail forwarded, and has already
stated it's a very efficient spams filter.

What is it usefull for ?
For Pliant, set normal user, then 'chroot' is a better solution since
FullPliant is mostly self contained.
I see no need and no advantage to have a full computer emulation (which is
probably required for Linux distributions since they are not chroot awared),
also I agree that we may need to polish a fiew things so that Pliant works
nicely chrooted, and I'm ready to do that because I think a nice way to host
secured Pliant web sites is to assign one Linux kernel user ID per web site,
and chroot each of them, then build a proxy that will forward port 80 requests
to each right HTTP server.

For the record, I do like the present forum format; nevertheless, like
Smoerk, I think I'd prefer an email system, or perhaps even private
newsgroups at news.pliant.cx (I'm getting to like PAN more and more).
Newsgroups would solve the problem of thread sorting, right? With a
newsgroup, threads are even more exact, aren't they? For example, I could
make this post a response specifically to Hubert's post quoted above (a
sub-thread of the general debate), instead of clumping it equally with all
the other posts in the debate.
As for patches, if we switched to (or added) an email system, couldn't a
link in an email just take a person to a login screen (if logging in
should even be necessary) and then automatically start the download?
And couldn't spam easily be avoided by requiring posts to be sent through
an authenticated smtp.pliant.cx server?
