Base System Installation Checklist:

First, the first Sarge Debian Installer runs fine on this machine both using
Linux kernel 2.4 and 2.6.

1. Config network

This wasn't successful but I guess this is the old problem that we have with
Alcatel Speedtouch DSL modems with (at least) the first Debian Installer on
Debian Sarge. I might provide install reports dedicated to network configuration
later when I manage to reboot the machine with Etch Debian Installer.

2. Reboot

This is the blocker for this install. When the machine reboots, the system says
that there isn't any SCSI bootable device. I provide below the grub-installer
trace just in case, but it seems everything is fine from here. Moreover
/dev/sdb1 is rightly marked as bootable in the partition table. I haven't any
idea on what's wrong. I have kept the SCSI disk on which this install was done
for any post-mortem examination. So if you need any logs, please just ask.

Given that the modem config is currently not supported by the
installer, this essentially concludes that the install is successful.

No, there is not. Everything that was previously in the second stage
(after a reboot) has been moved to the first stage. You then
immediately reboot in the installed system.
