    any chance on getting my hands on the latest code that comes close ?
    cvs ?
    I am willing to invest some timein it and try to get some of the 
    weirdness ironed out...the 0.4.0 version does not compile for me, the 
    vmadump.c has no support for x86_64, and the code in vmadump4 is for 2.6 
    kernels I assume...
    have been trying to hack it to work... but the version I have is way 
    off... ;)
    I have a cluster of 255 dual opterons that are in desperate need for a 
    checkpoint solution...
    thnx in advance, Kris
