This is a dns problem that means the name "ftp.debian.org" can not be found.
I think the problem is caused by one of these errors:
1. The ethernet card is not setup correctly: bad ip address, gateway
address, or connection.
2. The resolv.conf does not point to a active dns server. During the
installation of the base system, you are asked where the dns server
is located. Specifing the system that you are building as the dns
server will not work because dns will not be setup until after
bind is installed.
Edit the resolv.conf and make it point to an active dns server.
3. The ip address of the dns server in resolv.conf is not correct.
I hope this helps.
