Some more info would help. You are trying to install debian as a guest OS in Virtual PC ? On a windows host ? If I'm guessing right, have you checked that Virtual PC has access to the net ? I imagine there is a setting for exactly that. If Virtual PC is a windows program running on a windows host, a linux forum might not be the best place to find an answer to that question.

The more info the better.....Good luck...

I've had very good luck with virtualbox. It has a windows version too. It worked out of the box with a few sound issues that vmware choked on, and here's the best part, it's GPL, free as in freedom and beer. Vmware is good, but not free as in freedom. And vmware uses oss, not the more modern alsa. Virtualbox also has a "seamless" mode, that let the few windows applications float on my usual kde desktop. It's damn cool. Handled sound and networking with no extra effort on my part. And, I saved the vm on a shared partition, and was able to use the same windows2000 vm with both kubuntu AND with Vista hosts. Very cool, no hassle stuff.

Good luck...

Oh, and it was MUCH faster.....free...freedom, works out of the box, and much faster than vmware. And kick ass features. Give it a shot, I'll bet you like it.
