While we have had other reports of installer's chroot failing on powerpc, 
I haven't seen that myself. Perhaps the chroot version on the installer
balks at nfs? Can you test whether the chroot command that is failing
also fails if typed directly into the shell on console 2? (Assuming
those debs are still laying around in /target/var/cache/apt/archives )

If that works, how about if you try the debootstrap command itself (after mounting
the CD at /target/mnt manually)?

/usr/sbin/debootstrap --boot-floppies --arch powerpc woody /target file:/target/mnt
