i fixed this and can now enter the chroot. i used the ubuntu-package
from http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/qemu-arm-static . I installed
emdebian grip inside of a qemu-image and all worked fine.
Steps i have done:
1) mount the empty qemu image to armel/ : mount emdebian.img armel/
3) do debootstrap: build-arm-chroot lenny armel/
(build-arm-chroot is a shell-script from the package qemu-arm-static)
5)add entries to /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ lenny main
deb http://www.emdebian.org/grip lenny main
6) apt-get update
7) wget http://www.emdebian.org/d-i/grip-config.deb && dpkg -i
8) install kernel with: apt-get install linux-image-versatile
9) keyring from emdebian: apt-get install emdebian-archive-keyring
10) add proc to /etc/fstab : proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
11) exit chroot : exit
12) copy initrd and kernel-image outside of armel/ :
cp armel/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-versatile .
cp armel/boot/initrd.img-2.6.26-2-versatile .
13) start qemu:
qemu-system-arm -M versatilepb -kernel vmlinuz-2.6.26-2-versatile \
-initrd initrd.img-2.6.26-2-versatile -hda emdebian.img -append "root=/dev/sda1"
That's it. all works fine (inside of qemu is no internet connection,
but that can be fixed with qemu parameters)

i used this source-line
anyway. the first way with debootstrap works for me.
