Is it posible to load a new kernel while in a chrooted environment. Say I have one linux distro and want to chroot into another and load its kernel

    What you need to run another kernel is virtualization, not chroot. Take a look at Xen or KVM, or VMware. – Keith Aug 30 '11 at 21:42

Not likely. You are already running a kernel. To have it load a second one based on a particular login doesn't sound possible or desirable. With the proliferation of virtualization tools these days, I would think that's a more likely solution.
