I didn't mean to sound smart, I was just trying to figure out what  
you were trying to accomplish. The clients mount their minimal OS  
read only. So if you want to make changes to the client chroot, you'd  
have to chroot into the client root on the server (where you have  
read-write access) to make your changes. I think you might need to  
reboot the client to make some of the changes take effect (like if  
you enabled SSHD on the client).

Exactly, but you have to make the changes to the client root by  
chrooting into it on the server.
That's all I was trying to say.
