Thank you for your reply. However I do not understand what to do. If I
chroot into /compat/linux, then I lose the ability to run rpm because it
is not in my path and I can't access from chroot environment. I read
the Handbook section again. I don't find any mention of chroot. I have
also been reading the following two guides in an effort to figure this out.

The O'Reilly article doesn't mention chroot. The article
makes mention of it as optional to run linux binaries already
installed. However I don't have any installed. Is there some linux rpm
port I need to install?

I'm having a tough time grasping the concepts. Help!?!
