Yeah, but I guess I just figured that doing the one chapter by itself
would be a waste of time.

The reason chapter 5 is installed as non-root is so that you can't slip
up and overwrite host system files, right?  So in a properly set up
profile this isn't going to happen and it doesn't really matter if you
do chapter 5 as root.
