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.
