"chroot" sandbox

It would be nice if ReactOS could provide a separate system directory and a separate registry for testing software.

All the functionality of a chroot environment would have to be added to the kernel, which probably wouldn't be easy. I think adding the ability to use chroots to ROS would be a good idea since its one of the greatest security measures in the *nix world (im counting the BSD 'jail' as just a hardened chroot which is what it is).

Chroots are really useful for all sorts of things, like testing software.
