It has been a while since I played with vserver but I much prefer it for 
your kind of purpose than kvm or even Xen. Vserver is the 
lightest-weight choice IMHO.

Check out what the bytemark folks are doing. They tend to share their 
config and scripts http://www.bytemark.co.uk/page/Live/software. Also, 
openhosting.com sponsors www.openvps.org which is a hosting solution 
based on vserver. Some good ideas maybe gleaned from there. Not sure 
about the specific kernel issue you seem to be having though.
