Chroot Permission Denied?

K so, I start up in rescue mode, and type a "chroot /mnt/sysimage" so that I can safely use lilo etc... and all it does is tell me that permission is denied, but in rescue I am root, and I have successfully done this before. Also I am able to write to /mnt/sysimage. Any ideas?
