Before we actually chroot, its a good idea to mount devfs, fdesc and .volfs

Code: Mouting devfs, fdesc and .volfs
sudo mount -t devfs devfs /Volumes/Dargentoo/dev
sudo mount -t fdesc -o union stdin /Volumes/Dargentoo/dev
sudo mount_volfs /Volumes/Dargentoo/.vol

If that all worked, you can safely chroot

Code: chrooting
sudo chroot /Volumes/Dargentoo/ /bin/bash

If your disk image was made properly (see PantherChroot) and everything installed without error, you see a welcoming bash prompt such as this

Code: bash prompt

Finally, go to the installation HowTo to finish your installation.
