An ancillary question, if I may:
I've tried this chroot method with knoppix and come up against the problem 
that when chrooted into the future root partition you have no /dev 
filesystem, so lilo fails.  Knoppix has a /dev fs somewhere, presumably in 
its ramdrive, but neither you nor lilo can see it from in the chroot jail. Is 
there a way round this?
