debian installation failed: debootstrap/functions no such file or directory

Hi all,

I'm trying to install debian from a machine running SUSE. I found this HOWTO
But when trying to launch the debootstrap script it fails and returns the following error:

debootstrap: line 11: /usr/lib/debootstrap/functions: No such file or directory

Now, the file in question exists. Here's a listing of the

l175:/home/Lixy/work/usr/lib/debootstrap # ls -ail
total 76
345469 drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 192 2002-08-30 00:02 .
345468 drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 80 2002-08-30 00:02 ..
345479 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 5 2002-08-30 00:02 arch
345478 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 46504 2002-08-30 00:02 devices.tar.gz
345476 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13751 2002-08-30 00:02 functions
345477 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4636 2002-08-30 00:02 pkgdetails
345470 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 168 2002-08-30 00:02 scripts

Making it executable didn't fix the issue.

Sorry guys! I missed the backslash;

/usr/sbin/debootstrap --arch i386 woody \ /mnt/debinst/
