I do this regularly. I have a partition mounted as /mnt/rock-dev. To
install, what I do is this:
mine -i -v -R /mnt/rock-dev <path_to_gems>/*.gem
chroot /mnt/rock-dev /bin/bash --login
for I in /etc/cron.daily/*; do $I; done

For testing X apps, VNC comes in handy.
"su" into some user and run "vncserver." It will ask to set up a
password, enter it twice.
After VNC runs, kill it with 'vncserver -kill :1'.
Modify "~/.vnc/xstartup" and get rid of the xterm and twm lines, and
replace it with "startkde" or "gnome-session" (unless you want to use
xterm and twm).
Restart VNC with something like "vncserver -geometry 1024x768 -depth

Here's a screenshot of me chrooted in a build of 2.0.0 running KDE 3.2
under my 3.1 desktop: http://www.sirkull.org/screenshots/screen.png.
Hope that helps.
