All chroot does is, for all ["child process"]es, replace the ["root directory"] on a ["Unix-like"] system with one of the operators' choosing.

Setting up a network inside a chroot /tmp/custom/debian-live/chroot/

sudo mount -o bind /sys /tmp/custom/debian-live/chroot/sys
sudo mount -o bind /proc /tmp/custom/debian-live/chroot/proc
sudo chroot /tmp/custom/debian-live/chroot/

Now in the chroot you might need to reset the ["network"] in order for the route/dns stuff to be setup.

dhclient eth0

This is useful for testing and configuring a system that is to be deployed, e.g.["DebianLive"].
