All seems to work, steps for the future googlers that don't quite
match the guide above:

* get the new version of debootstrap

Add this to /etc/apt/sources.list

   deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu maverick-backports main
universe multiverse restricted

* install it

   # apt-get update
   # apt-get install debootstrap

--- make a new partition as per the guide ---

* run debootstrap

   # debootstrap --arch amd64 natty /mnt/installer

Don't know why it was detecting the architecture wong?  I also use
iinet so disregard that last argument and replace it with something
more appropriate for your own uses.
