Well just don't try loading Sarge on that machine.  It won't work.  A
daily build might load, although since testing still has 2.6.12, you are
better off selecting unstable for now and loading 2.6.15.  Then it might
work OK.  Of course many people are having trouble building the fglrx
drivers for 2.6.15 (at least on amd64) so that may be a different issue
(although one likely to be resolved soon).
