btw the .bash_profile looks good.

Ok, let's try to chown a file manually then.

Enter chroot, cd /root and try this:

touch test-file
chown root test-file
chgrp kmem test-file

Did those two work? If so, then try this:
chown root.kmem test-file

And: chown root:kmem test-file

Which one of those commands fail?
