+  <para> There are two different ways you can proceed from this point

+  a few other utilities, boot into the temporary system, and build the
+  rest there. The other option is to chroot into the temporary system.

   you can just chroot. If you aren't running the same series kernel, or are
   wanting to run a different ABI, you will need to use the boot option.</para>
