I had recently posted in the group for suggestions on the best possible

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.
Install sarge and dist-upgrade.
How does one shift this to get chroot running sarge or etch instead of sid?
And how the heck do I point it at a more local server? I am still figuring
out apt-get, but I am slaved to the links preconfigured. bootstrap has me
debootstrap --arch i386 sid /var/chroot/sid-ia32
Seems fairly self-evident to me. Instead of "sid" on the above line say
"sarge", instead of "http://ftp.uk.debian.org/debian" use one of the
hundreds of URLs on http://www.debian.org/mirror/list - how is this
complex or beyond basic common sense?
