You got two pretty good replies, neither of which described
what I used for that.

I did basically the same thing you are, but with the LFS 6.3 LiveCD.
However, I used another technique. I wrote a little script file which I
put into the topmost level of the new file system, which did all the
setup. Later, when I needed it, I wrote another which also reentered the
chroot environment.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
