    Hi,
    a container uses parts of the host (kernel, ...). So you can't create an container from a kvm-backup.
    You must create an container and restore the software (or data) from the kvm-guest. EG. instal inside the container an mysql-server and copy the mysql-DBs from the backup to the right place, start mysql and check if all running. Same with websites: install apache and put all nessessary "old" data to the right place.

    OpenVZ can run almost any Linux, you just need a template. Take a look on http://openvz.org for introduction of OpenVZ.
