Dead simple. It helps to have a script to automate the configuration of
the zone, but there are plenty of sources of information on what you
need. Once that's done, the hard part is choosing an address, and name
for the zone ... I created about 60 yesterday (and deleted about 55 this
morning). Suprisingly space efficient too ... those 60 odd zones took up
about 1.6Gbytes of space.

I think the good thing about zones is that you don't have to know about
the contents to control them ... a simple 'zoneadm -z blue halt' and a
rogue zone is under control.
