5) use your distro's procedure to bootstrap into a chroot environment (if it has one) such as debian's debootstrap or by using gentoo's stage3 installation approach. (none for RedHat9 that I'm aware of)

Here are the mechanisms I know and their requirements. I plan to put this in the Wiki as soon as it goes live (if it's not already there):


I have done something very equivalent to your gentoo procedure, but when I try to emerge glibc (or as a dependency for many other things) I'm getting a segfault near the end of the process. I'm guessing this is the nptl problem, and so far I haven't been able to work around it.

FWIW, this is with xen unstable as of about 1 week ago.
