You will probably need to ensure that an exact copy of the script you are
running is in the same relative location in teh chrooted environment
otherwise the computer wont know what command to execute next as the
script can no longer be found.
the script will also need to be an exact copy, not just a file with the
same name as the shell interpreter will be looking for an exact line/byte
count as to where to find the next instruction out of the script.
