Not able to get Debian packages using FTP

Hi There,
     I had successfully installed the base system on my Intel PC.Now I run DSELECT, FTP access, give ftp site : ftp.debian.org; debian dir: /pub/debian;download dir: debian etc, I get this error : "NET::FTP:bad host name 'ftp.debian.org' at /usr/lib/perl5/Net/FTP.pm line 405 FTP error,script exit status 1".
    Any idea what is the problem and its solution? One thing I think is that, I should have already connected to my ISP to get files over internet, but I am not sure how to start the connection in Linux. Please let me know what is to be done.
Thanks in advance
