Debian Sid on chroot

Today i sucessfully installed Debian Sid on chroot in my Debian Sarge machine :) Here is the procedeure i followed from http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/reference/ch-tips.en.html#s-chroot See what i do:
     main # cd / ; mkdir /sid-root
     main # debootstrap sid /sid-root http://ftp.debian.org/debian/
     ... watch it download the whole system
     main # echo "proc-sid /sid-root/proc proc none 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
     main # mount proc-sid /sid-root/proc -t proc
     main # cp /etc/hosts /sid-root/etc/hosts
     main # chroot /sid-root /bin/bash
     chroot # cd /dev; /sbin/MAKEDEV generic ; cd -
     chroot # apt-setup # set-up /etc/apt/sources.list
     chroot # vi /etc/apt/sources.list # point the source to unstable
It give's me a total debian Sid system with only base packages.
     main # echo "8:23:respawn:/usr/sbin/chroot /sid-root "           "/sbin/getty 38400 tty8"  >> /etc/inittab
    main # init q    # reload init
It makes the login system in tty8 (no need to chroot everytime)
     main # cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /sid-root/etc/X11/XF86Config-4
     main # chroot /sid-root # or use chroot console
     chroot # cd /dev; /sbin/MAKEDEV generic ; cd -
     chroot # apt-get install gdm gnome x-window-system
     chroot # vi /etc/gdm/gdm.conf # do s/vt7/vt9/ in [servers] section
     chroot # /etc/init.d/gdm start
Now, my system is ready to work with Debian Sid with Graphical manager. Source: http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/reference/ch-tips.en.html#s-chroot So now 2 linux distribution is runing at time. Debian Sarge on tty7 and Debian Sid on tty9
