actually not in woody, unless his 2.0 kernel does not use kernel
modules at all.  modutils in woody doesn't support 2.0.

lets not exaggerate, the only distribution i know that actually
chroots bind by default is OpenBSD.  it wasn't until very recently
that linux distrubutions even stopped running it as root by default
(which all of them except debian have now done).  but last i checked
redhat and friends ran it as named.named but not in a chroot.
