if your only disk in this system hangs off this adapter and the latest
SRM does not support it, then the only route I see is to install woody
and then dist-upgrade to testing. 

If this disk already doesn't work, you might even go back further,
installing potato, and then dist-upgrading to woody and next to
testing. If you try to install only the bare minimum on potato install
and only after upgrading to testing do

apt-get install whaterver_i_want

(or use aptitude etc.) then the impact on the amount to download
should be limited.
