remount root to new partition

Is it possible to umount / and remounting root on another partition.
On partition A is mounted on /
and on partition B I have a 3 meg root system on part B which I created from partition A (like a boot recuse disk)
I Also have partimge on partition B with a few partition images.
Anyway I want to change init 6 so that before the system shuts down the system boots from partition B so that I can restore the root partition A before shutdown. Kinda like chroot but umounting the original partition so that it could be restored.
I'd like to automate this process so that I can just leave the computer let it do its thing then shutdown.
thanks in return
