newbie image headaches

ok here we go...
i have a sparcstation 5 i want to install debian on
i'm useing a pc running win98se to burn the image
i am trying to use the pseudo cd image program and i think i can't find
the right site for the files to be imaged.
i got the list files for sparc from
there were 3 list files
and i got all three and they seem to have different content.]

first question:  do i need all three lists? are these 3 separate images
or 1 image?

i run
make-pseudo-image binary-sparc-1.list http://debian.gnaps.com/debian/
make-pseudo-image binary-sparc-2.list http://debian.gnaps.com/debian/
make-pseudo-image binary-sparc-3.list http://debian.gnaps.com/debian/
and the first line gives me an error message, so i quit.

bash.exe warning: unable to find /tmp please create
and then it pulls a couple of files the tells me it cant find any files
on the site beginning with /bin/

i have to use http cause i got a linux masquerade running on a pc
(mandrake 7.1 , kde, gfcc) that i haven't totally figured out yet and i
have occasional trouble with ftp. separate issue.

i'm assuming i'm doing something wrong here.

thanks in advance
Lars Hall
