Don't know what sid is, but i went to:
and did something like:
download, rawrite onto floppies, and boot pc:
download .../base-images-current/basedebs.tar , burn onto a CD,
and read into the linux pc.
The process should get dial-out working, so you can install
packages from the net using dselect.
Instructions are at http://www.debian.org/distrib/floppyinst
I had a second PC with windows, so i could do downloading etc
while i was getting the debian PC loaded.
