debootstrap became broken when a new ppp package entered woody
recently.  (it added a dependency on libpcap0 which debootstrap
doesn't include in its base list).

i am afraid you will have to wait for the next release of
boot-floppies, or sweet talk someone into building a set with the
updated debootstrap (i wrote an NMU for it which aph uploaded
yesterday).
