I was wondering if there is any problem with my mainboard. I have an Abit Aw8-Max, a Intel Pentium D 830, and 2 optical units, a cd-rw and a dvd-rw both Plextor.

The 2.6.8 kernel is rather old and doesn't support hardware released
after it was (that means any new hardware made in the last 18 months).
Try either getting one of the newer unofficial sarge installers (such as
the one from http://kmuto.jp/debian/d-i/) or install Etch(testing)
instead which officially has amd64 support from debian.
