Hi Frank,

As root run: dpkg-reconfigure dash and select "No". This will solve this 
problem. Another tip is to check and edit, as root and outside sbox, 
your "/scratchbox/etc/nsswitch.conf" file and change the "hosts" like this:

hosts:          files dns

This will avoid problems when you try to connect to the internet (e.g.: 
using apt-get update).
