unanswered bug report

Below you will find the bug report that I filed roughly a month ago. I am dismayed that I have not yet received a response to my query, since my computer has been useless for the past month. I do not own another computer and do not have a desk job, and hence have to pay for access to computers at any point that I want to use one. Given this wait period, I hope that you can answer my message in the next twenty-four hours. I need, at this point, to be able to configure Debian to be able to:
1. use a standard word-processing package that can read various MS and other file formats
2. use Skype (audio only)
3. use a standard web browser
4. listen to mp3 files (this requirement is not for my entertainment)
5. read PDF files

[E] Comments/Problems: <First of all, I don't remember if the loading of the installer modules went well; hence the question mark. When setting up the network, I get an error message: "Network autoconfiguration failed". This may simply be due to the fact that I don't have an internet connection. When I try to install the base system, I get the following error messages: "Debootstrap Error" and "Failed to determine the codename for the release." Also, due in part to the non-intuitive nature of the installation instructions, I deleted part of Windows (enough so that I no longer had access to it) during the partitioning process.>
