Dell Poweredge 2950 + Virtuozzo Enterprise Kernel

By default when you install Virtuozzo on a Dell PowerEdge 2950 with more than 4 gigs of ram it will NOT let you make use of the other ram, and when you try to boot the Enterprise Kernel it will panic on you. The fix for this is actually pretty simple you just need to download a special kernel / kernel modules from the SW-Soft ftp. When downloading you will need to use the username and password provided to you from SW-Soft. After the install reboot and all should be well.
