I did, but when I read it, I thought it said you could use woody or
sarge for your chroot. I guess either it has changed or I misunderstood
the instructions.

My correction is as follows:
"We recommend using woody as your chroot because there are a number of
package version conflicts between the amd64 port of sarge and official
Debian sarge."

The problem is the FAQ doesn't delineate a clear line of distinction
between 1) a woody chroot for building the kernel and 2) an amd64 sarge
chroot for 32/64 user space. For [1], debootstrap is fine, but for [2]
you need cdebootstrap, no?

And if you've done [1] with debootstrap, doesn't that fuck you over when
you want your chroot from [1] to be converted to [2]?
