So I want to install a Debian kernel on that unbootable partition. But
how to install a kernel on a partition that is not booted? With
chroot? Is that ever done?


I've done it with chroot a few times. Should work generally just fine.



That was surprisingly easy!

I put linux-base_2.6.32-23_all.deb and
linux-image-2.6.32-5-686_2.6.32-23_i386.deb in the root directory of the
partition in question and then chrooted into it.


Then I dpkg -i linux-base_2.6.32-23_all.deb and dpkg -i
linux-image-2.6.32-5-686_2.6.32-23_i386.deb.


They installed without a hitch and I was able to boot the partition!
