What parameters are you passing to debootstrap? It should be something
debootstrap etch /debian_chroot http://somemirror/debian

If that's correct, you should make sure that you're running it as root
and the chroot binary is in PATH ('which chroot').

If that doesn't help, please copy the exact error you're receiving.
