UML sounds like it might be worth a shot. As far as the chroot goes, I
never used gentoo that way.
What do you do for a browser? Do you have to chroot every time you want
to run your browser? Or do you run a 64-bit browser? The only real
thing that I am missing is the ability to see a video in Firefox such as
the movie trailers at Apple, etc.
