The problem is that you need a more recent kernel than 2.6.8 that shipped 
with Sarge. You will need to find out what kernel version supports your 
controller.

One option is to install using the Etch Beta1 (uses 2.6.12) or daily (uses 
2.6.15) installation images. Both will install an Etch system (not Sarge) 
which currently has a 2.6.12 kernel (although with some manual 
intervention you could install a 2.6.15 kernel from unstable).
We are working on an Etch Beta2 release that will use 2.6.15 for the 
installed system as well.

There are also some unofficial installation CDs around that can install 
Sarge with a 2.6.12 kernel (or maybe even more recent kernels), but these 
are not supported and I don't have links available.

Cheers,
FJP
