I created sarge filesystem (for arm) with debootstrap on a x86 machine.
A quick investigation showed that I don't have passwd/group/shadow files.

For me it worked ok, using
   debootstrap --foreign etc etc etc
then booting that with kernel option init=/bin/sh to run
   /debootstrap/debootstrap --second-stage.

This one makes problems, too:

sh-2.05b# debootstrap --second-stage
cat: /usr/lib/debootstrap/suite: No such file or directory

All right, I didn't use the --foreign option...
