/dev/null: Permission denied

I have started to remaster knoppix:
boot my computer with a knoppix bootable cd.
then mount a harddisk partition(say hda1).
mkdir /mnt/hda1/source
mkdir /mnt/hda1/source/KNOPPIX
cp -Rp /KNOPPIX /mnt/hda1/source/KNOPPIX
then when I try to chroot to copied knoppix:
chroot /mnt/hda1/source/KNOPPIX
It gives me error message:
/dev/null: Permission denied
/dev/null: Permission denied
/dev/null: Permission denied
/dev/null: Permission denied
/dev/null: Permission denied
I checked the permission of /dev/null. but there is no problem in its permissions.
What should I do to fix this problem?
