32bit chroot help

I had recently posted in the group for suggestions on the best possible
setup for a dual opteron compile/head node for our cluster. The solution
for 32bit support was to install a chroot for compiling 32bit
applications. I have a few questions on the best way to set up the 32bit

1) The base-config package has been dropped. Do I need to configure the
32bit chroot or I dont need to configure the chroot at all.

2) We use nis for providing a single authentication system. From the
documents I read I need to have a copy of my /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow
and /etc/group in the 32bit chroot. Since I am using nis what would be
the way to enable this.

I really appreciate the help given by all the debian developers and
