If you really want Etch I'd suggest you try Etch-and-a-half installer  which has a more recent kernel (2.6.24).

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). Cheers, FJP  http://www.debian.org/releases/etch/debian-installer/etchnhalf
