Verio uses something called "virtual kernel" or something like that.
I forget the exact name that's attached to it.  In any case it creates
many little virtual jailed environments on one physical box.  You can do
some things (like munge your own httpd.conf, your own MTA settings, etc)
but not others (like install any old software you want to).

The short answer is: ask Verio support.
