Thank you very much for your answer. -
Great. This way I will get a spare Celeron 2.44 for building a hlfs
Besides, does somebody know the answer to my chroot questions? It would
save some time if I knew which service works with chroot and which not.
This way I don't need to test every service with the chroot jail.
