[maemo-developers] Differenced from fakeroot apt-get install and normal apt-get install?

using Scratchbox, with Maemo SDK, somewhere I read this, for example:

fakeroot apt-get install maemo-explicit

to install the package "maemo-explicit", while, for example, in
another site I read this:

apt-get install python2.5-runtime

to install the Python environment. What are the differences between
using fakeroot or not?

Another question: when I install an application into a target, using
apt-get, do I have to install it in both target?
