First of all that instructions and approach are outdated and
unsupported. Now emdebian uses another one. I think people from this
list can explain you better than me how to build bootable emdebian

What I did in November 2005 is a kind of 'proof of concept'. I manage to
build tiny working rootfs out of emdebianized packages. But it seems
that concept was not appreciated by Debian developers, so it was not
developed further. Emdebian has new concept now and new packages. I'd
suggest you to look at them if you really want to build emdebian rootfs.
