Sounds like the kernel does not like your system. One obvious thing to try 
is the etch-and-a-half installer, which uses and installs a more recent 
kernel than the original Etch release. See [1] for further info.

Alternatively, you could try the Lenny Release Candidate RC1 images[2]
if you're OK to install the "not yet stable" version of Debian (namely
Lenny) on this machine.
