The problem is I can't chroot since the executable format is different.

Is there a way to change the ltsp-build-client to download an Ubuntu image or OpenSUSE so I don't have to compile the new image and kernel, or a workaround for compiling Gentoo images?

Mardok45,

You can cross compile the x86 Gentoo on a PPC. I don't have all the details.
Code:
emerge crossdev
build yourself a cross toolchain and off you go.
The toolchain bit makes my head hurt, since you can build cross cross toolchains too.
Think about building a toolchain on a PPC, that will be run on an AMD64 that will emit code for a SPARC. You won't go there.
You only need to build on a PPC for and x86
