Great document, thanks for the pointer.

Unfortunately, this entry is what keeps biting me:

Is there no flash plugin for mozilla?

No. If you really need to access such webpages, install mozilla and
flashplugin-nonfree in your 386 chroot and use the 32bit browser to
access the sites.

I watch a lot of YouTube, and I've been missing Flash on my 64 bit
machine.  Thanks for suggesting the 32 bit chroot.
