MailScanner/postfix chroot

the quote below is from MailScanner documentation. it involves setting up MailScanner to use postfix MTA.
Make sure you have the chroot jail set up in /var/spool/postfix. You should be able to see "etc", "usr" and "lib" directories inside /var/spool/postfix)
my problem is that i can't locate usr, lib or etc under /var/spool/postfix. here is the contenet of /var/spool/postfix:
root@mailgw:/var/spool/postfix# dir
active/  corrupt/  deferred/  hold/      maildrop/  private/  saved/
bounce/  defer/    flush/     incoming/  pid/       public/   trace/
note that postfix is working fine. i can telnet into the server and do some smtp commands... i will appreciate any help on this.
i tried to run chroot anyway and it's coming back with this:
root@mailgw:/var/spool/postfix# whereis chroot
chroot: /bin/chroot /usr/bin/chroot /usr/man/man1/chroot.1.gz /usr/man/man2/chroot.2.gz /usr/share/man/man1/chroot.1.gz /usr/share/man/man2/chroot.2.gz
root@mailgw:/var/spool/postfix# /bin/chroot /var/spool/postfix/
/bin/chroot: cannot run command `/bin/bash': No such file or directory
i didn't understand what happened there as well.
