Rumor has it that Ken Moffat may have mentioned these words:

I was getting "Command Not Found." I found out why, too:

in the PATH= statement to make the chroot environment, instead of having:

/tools/bin --- I had :
tools/bin  --- so it wasn't finding the tools correctly once I'd cd out of 
the root directory...

So I'd bet that wasn't integral to my problem after all...

Ah well... to keep plugging away. Thanks,
