08/01/2004 floppies: 3c59x doesn't work

I'm trying to install Debian Sarge with the floppies from 1st August 2004 on a 
Pentium 2GHz (boot, root, net-drivers).
The problem is that I can't get to the internet.
The computer is in a local network and has a static IP-adress, gateway and 
DNS-server. It works under Windows XP.

Here are some lines from /var/log/syslog:

netcfg[2846]: INFO: Executing: mii-diag -s eth0
netcfg[2846]: sh: mii-diag not found

netcfg[2846]: INFO: link status for eth0 is: unknown (127)

hw-detect: Detected module ´3c59x´ for ´3Com Corporation 3c900B Combo
  Etherlink XL [Cyclone]´

kernel: 00:0c.0: 3Com PCI 3c900B Cyclone 10Mbps Combo at 0x9000 . Vers

kernel: 00:0c.0: scatter/gather enabled. h/w checksums enabled

So where is the problem and what does it cause?

with regards,
