Thanks for the clue.. but can you expand a little?

I'm no linux newbie - I know enough to be dangerous... VERY  
dangerous ;-)  However, I seem to remember something from my past  
about chroot, but all I can find currently is part of bind..

I'm going to try just copying mythconverg to the new drive.. but I  
think I'd rather do things the "right" way - besides, all I really  
want is the program data the rest of the settings etc has already  
been taken care of ..

btw:  I also switched to mythdora running w/ ratpoison - seems to be  
functioning VERY nicely.
