If you really want Etch I'd suggest you try Etch-and-a-half installer [1] 
which has a more recent kernel (2.6.24). Otherwise trying Lenny is the 
best option.

Huh? Daily images are all up-to-date AFAICT. DVD images are built weekly, 
not daily.

But why don't you download a smaller image first to see if it works? You 
could even use the mini.iso for that (see "other images", netboot).
