Name        : debootstrap
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 1.0.28
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://code.erisian.com.au/Wiki/debootstrap
Summary     : Debian GNU/Linux bootstrapper
Description :
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.
