Yep, no domain is set.

I assume you don't want to do a new installation, right?

If d-i uses info from DHCP for the hostname and domain, it will write
it to /etc/hosts, hostname, etc.  The installed Debian system doesn't
use DHCP for this.  So you simply need to change /etc/hosts, hostname
and every other file that mentions example.org and change it to
something else.

This will show you the files:
  grep -r example.org /etc

The other question is whether your NSLU2 should obtain an IP address
via DHCP or use the static address.  If it should use DHCP, you have
to edit /etc/network/interfaces

Not really... at least not explicitly.  But my install page describes
where d-i gets the network values from.
