Anyway, maybe this will help others that run into similar problems.
I'm still not sure whether I did something wrong or not but I
learned a lot about installing embedded Debian systems.
FYI, there is a "pre-made" debian image for netwinder available:
It comes in the form of a tar.gz file which you can simply unpack on to
the hard drive. You can do this either by putting the drive in a PC, or
doing network boot, or using the Netwinder's "Rescue partition" software.
Once unpacked, you should be able to boot into this image and apt-get
update to your hearts content. The image is rather old but might be a
simpler way to get started.
