The daily images (which are based on "etch") are currently broken.
They contain kernel 2.6.12 but the modules for kernel 2.6.15. 

Please try again with the sid_d-i images. You can find them on

If it still doesn't work please fill out an installation report with the

or mail debain-boot@lists.debian.org
