sarge's installer can't be used on a LOT of modern hardware.  etch installer 
could see the SATA disc of my new Laptop, but not the CD-ROM (I had to 
netboot).  Ubuntu does just fine, so what I have now is a laptop installed 
with the installer beta for etch (kudos to the d-i team, worked just fine), 
and then added the current kernel from Ubuntu (I hope they stay that close 
to Debian!) so that I can use the CD-ROM, too.

And sarge is not that old right now...

If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.
