It is extremely useful when installing Linux from another running Linux
(which could be tomsrtbt, Knoppix, etc.) Just run it like this:

	chroot /mnt/newroot /bin/sh
	cd /

substituting the correct mount point containing the new Linux installation
for /mnt/newroot. The shell, /bin/sh above, must exist in the new root
directory. The chroot does not take effect immediately if you are in some
other directory; the 'cd' insures that your shell is in the new root.
