Never mind Joey, I see the error in my text.  The names of the two ISOs
are backwards.  The netinst doesn't need any net to do a base Sarge
install.  The businesscard iso does need a network connection in order
to do a base install, and because it uses stable/testing/unstable it can
no longer do a Sarge install.

So, if you want to do a base Sarge install, grab the netinst.iso image.
