If you can't chroot than your system isn't going to very much at all. From
what I understand you build the LFS system in another computer, then moved
it to the P90 and in the P90 machine it doesn't work, right? This is
because some software apparently was compiled specifically for your other
computer and when you moved to older hardware it stopped working.
