adduser is on the first CD, can someone confirm ?

And I guess that adduser is the first base package that debootstrap tries
to get, so it may not be related to debian-cd ... maybe something totally
different like nothing mounted on /instmnt ...

Check with debian-boot and aj, explain what you did, eventually what you
skipped in the process. The problem is not with debian-cd I guess.

Other people had success, you must do something different from the others
that'd explain it. Do you try to get the base from the CD or from the
network ?
