That is, if I may say so, bullshit.
The link I gave you gives fairly good instructions:
- proceed to the point where you get to partitioning harddisks and
- switch to VT2 (using alt-F2)
or back out to the menu and start a shell from there
- manually mount the partition(s) where you installed Debian on /target
- execute chroot /target.
OK, so maybe, just before "manually mount the partitions on /target" there
should be a 'mkdir /target'. IMO, you could have figured that out for
Anyway, I've added the missing link in the FAQ to avoid future confusion.
