Two servers on one Linode?

I deployed a distribution using half my disk space. It is up and running. Now I just deployed another distribution into the other half of my disk space (and I added another IP address).

Can I boot both?

How do I assign the 2nd IP address to the second distribution?

Each linode can only be booted into one config profile at a time. Think of it as a dual-boot machine.

You could, however, try running a UML instance inside your linode, I suppose.

Thank you. I see that what I wanted to do will not work.
