I will be trying this for the time being with 7.04.  So I assume this means any changes
I make will only need to be done in the chroot and I will not have to update any images
and such.  Let me know if there are any reasons this procedure won't work under 7.04 and
if I need to do anything beyond installing and configuring the chroot.  

Hopefully I will be able to upgrade my server setup to Hardy this summer, but for now
things are running rock solid, so I'll leave it at Feisty.
