You wouldn't mount it, you'd just unpack it into a dir and chroot
You'd need to mount /proc, /sys and /dev into the chroot. I think you can
use the bind option to mount:
" The bind mounts.
Since Linux 2.4.0 it is possible to remount part of the
hierarchy somewhere else. The call is
mount --bind olddir newdir"
So I think you can mount the chrome's /dev and so on into the dir into
which you'll chroot.
It *might* work - but probably would need some hacking about in places.
