Hewlett Packard Virtual Partitions Explained
This article is based on the Text HP Virtual Partitions, published by Prentice Hall PTR ISBN # 0-13-065419-1. All of the topics in this article are covered in much more detail in the book.
I refer to chapters in the vPars book many times in this article. There is a lot of good vPars background and many useful examples in this article; however, vPars are a complex topic on which I based a separate book, so there is no way I could cover all aspects of vPars in one article. I refer to the chapters in the vPars book as a source of more detail on a given topic.
