AFAICS, you need to pass the "suite" argument (lenny, squeeze, …) before
the target directory. This works for me:

# debootstrap --arch=mips lenny debian/

But you probably also want to add '--foreign' in order to run the second
stage on the target system.

Good luck and thanks for the link! I own an RS Pro as well and thought
about running Debian on it as well. I just have problems getting the
card reader and the USB port to work and wifi (802.11n a or g) doesn't
work yet, either, so I am currently fighting these issues.

People talking a foreign language are romantic and mysterious.
