How to load and run multiple instances of L4Linux, etc.

My primary interest is to use Fiasco/L4Linux as a network emulator. To do so I'd like to run multiple copies of L4Linux on my PC, with each copy emulating a node in my network. I have just managed to get my compiled L4Linux-2.6 up and running using a copy of the GRUB menu.lst from the demo CD. But I am a new L4 user and have no idea on how to configure my boot to achieve this. Could someone suggest a sample menu.lst for booting multiple instances of L4Linux?

Another novice question is how to run a Linux application on L4Linux. Can I simply add my application binary (e.g. XORP) that was pre-compiled for my desktop Linux to my L4Linux RAM disk? Or do I have to re-compile and link my app for L4 environment?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
