debootstrap - Bootstrap a basic Debian GNU/Linux system
debootstrap is used to create a Debian base system from scratch, without requiring the availability of dpkg or apt. It does this by downloading .deb files from a mirror site, and carefully unpacking them into a directory which can eventually be chrooted into. This might be often useful coupled with virtualization techniques to run Debian GNU/Linux guest system.
