With the release of Hardy, the PowerPC archive has been moved from archive.ubuntu.com to ports.ubuntu.com.
So now you have to use debootstrap --arch powerpc intrepid /mnt/ubuntu/ http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports/

See: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/804 for the announcement of the move.

but now it works OK

You should generally just leave out the URL, since debootstrap can figure it out for itself. For the next upload of installation-guide, I've changed the documentation not to recommend including it.
