Working ia32-linux chroot image

I've been playing around with the /emul/ia32-linux area a bit lately and I finally got tired of pulling down library packages debs and extracting them into that area manually. I first used debootstrap to install a full system into a chroot there, but realized that's a heck of a lot wasted space on unneeded packages. After a bit of tweaking I've gotten what I think is the smallest chroot that will still allow you to use apt-get and dpkg. Since it took me a while to build (debian depends don't work when you're removing half the base system) I've decided to share it. You can download a tar.bz with instructions on how to use it from my site here:


Any feedback is welcome,
